DIRECTIONS

  • GARLIC MASHED POTATOES: Boil potatoes in a large pot of salted water until they are fork tender.
  • Drain thoroughly and return potatoes to the pot.
  • Melt the butter in a small pan over low heat.
  • Add the minced garlic to infuse the flavor into the butter.
  • Add the milk (or cream) just enough time to warm it.
  • Using a potato masher, mash the potatoes while adding the butter/garlic mixture.
  • Season to taste with salt and white pepper. DO NOT overmix the potatoes!
  • WHISKEY BUTTER SAUCE: Cut the butter up into small pieces and chill in the freezer. Place the wine, whiskey and shallot into a small pan.
  • Simmer over low heat until mixture is reduced to 1 tablespoon.
  • Remove from heat and add the butter, one piece at a time. Stir the butter into the sauce, whisking until melted.
  • Keep cooking butter sauce on low heat until the ingredients are incorporated. The sauce should have a thick and creamy appearance.
  • Keep sauce warm, but not over direct heat.
  • SHRIMP: Place 4 shrimp on each bamboo skewer. Lightly oil the shrimp and season with salt and pepper.
  • Grill on high just until flesh turns white-no longer translucent.
  • (If you want you can lightly sautè the shrimp in a pan on medium-high heat using the same directions in Step #13.).
  • Presentation: Divide and spoon the mashed potatoes into each martini glass.
  • Stand a shrimp skewer upright but at an angle into the mashed potatoes.
  • Place one stuffed green olive on the top end of each skewer.
  • Pour whiskey sauce over each shrimp skewer.
