    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    One of those old-fashioned supper club type recipes, complete with a smoky piano bar in the corner and an ashtray on every table. This recipe comes from the 1965 edition of "The Gourmet Foods Cookbook" published by the Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, Illinois. And in fact, Shrimp de Jonghe was created in Chicago in the 1920s at the De Jonghe Hotel on Monroe Street in The Loop, either by the hotel owner himself or his chef, Emil Zehr. Unfortunately, the hotel was closed in the 1930s for, yup, violations of the Prohibition Act. I've reduced a little of the butter and replaced a tablespoon of it with olive oil, but this dish is still very rich, and may be prepared as an appetizer for 4 people as well.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Combine the bread crumbs, salt and pepper and set aside.
    2. 2
      Melt together the softened butter, olive oil, garlic, parsley, chives, onion and Worcestershire Sauce; set aside.
    3. 3
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    4. 4
      In a 1 quart baking dish (or 4 individual ramekins or large shells), toss the shrimp with the sherry.
    5. 5
      Pour 2/3 of the butter-garlic mixture over shrimp, then top with the bread crumb mixture.
    6. 6
      Drizzle remaining butter-garlic mixture over the crumbs and Bake at 400 degrees F until crumbs are lightly browned.
    7. 7
      Lightly broil for a minute or 2 more if you like really crunchy crumbs.
    8. 8
      I typically serve this with angel hair pasta tossed with olive oil and a little more garlic, salad, and a side of breath mints.

      Although I would like to give this recipe 5 stars for taste and ease, cooking the already cooked shrimp at 400 degrees for 15-20 mins really made it too tough to eat. Maybe I did something wrong? Next time I think I will try to cook it with raw shrimp and see how it turns out.

      I had a bunch of cooked shrimp from a party I forgot to bring it to. I had no idea what to do with it until I tried this. Now I will cook shrimp just to eat this dish. It was very good. I will cut back on the butter a bit next time as it is swimming in butter which was not necessary. But everything else was perfect. Thank you so much for sharing.

      I loved this - it would also make a great filling for broiled stuffed mushrooms! I told DH I could eat this tossed with pasta even without the shrimp - maybe diced tomatoes or something. Served with angel hair pasta tossed with butter, parm, and crushed red pepper, along with zucchini. Yum! Thanks!
