My wife didn't like shrimp until we made this recipe. Now she loves it, and especially when we make it like this.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium high heat, with the olive oil.
  2. Add garlic and the de arbol peppers (you can use any dried spicy pepper, like thai, bird's eye, pequin, etc -- ).
  3. If you like it milder, do not break open the chiles, if you like it hot, break 'em up, I do!
  4. Before the garlic starts to brown, add the shrimp and cook until no longer pink, about 3-5 minutes.
  5. Add the wine and reduce it for about 3 minutes or until the shrimp are cooked.
  6. Add the lemon zest and juice, and add the cilantro, stir, and serve immediately.
  7. You can serve it with fettucini pasta, or on a bed of rucola, for example.
  8. Sometimes we just make a salad with it and use french bread to mop up the goodness.

This is a recipe worthy of making again & again. I used a wok just sprayed it with "No Oil" (no butter or Olive oil used) added the garlic and 2 Serrano pepppers cut in half to allow some heat out but not too overpowering. Then I added the wine (Marsala). I used 1/4 cup the recipe said 1/2 glass and I wasn't sure what size glaas you meant. Then added the prawns, put the lid on the wok and in 3 minutes they were perfect. I cut the recipe back to 14 prawns. Delicious recipe
