I tried this unusual recipe years ago and just unearthed it again. Shrimp, tart apples and snow peas are combined with a sweetish and creamy mustard sauce; serve over rice or pasta. It's just a little bit odd, but it's a nice combination of flavors.
Blanch snow peas in boiling water for about 3 minutes, then plunge into ice water to stop the cooking process; set aside.
In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter and saute apple slices over medium heat about 5 minutes.
Sprinkle slices with the sugar and raise the heat, stirring slices constantly until they are lightly caramelized; reserve slices.
In the same skillet, melt the remaining 3 tablespoons butter and lightly cook the minced onion, covered, about 25 minutes or until soft and lightly colored; raise heat and add shrimp, cooking about 3 minutes or until firm and pink.
Remove shrimp from skillet and reserve.
Pour the wine into the skillet and reduce it by 2/3 over high heat.
Reduce heat and whisk in the mustard.
Pour in the cream and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes or until sauce is reduced slightly.
Drain snow peas thoroughly and pat dry; add them to the mustard-cream sauce along with the apples and shrimp; simmer together for 1 minute and serve over rice or pasta.
