A friend really likes Costco's frozen Island Lime Shrimp
He recently bought several pounds of shelled, frozen pre-cooked shrimp & asked if I could duplicate that taste. I found this recipe that looks very similar in taste but starts with uncooked shrimp:
Caribbean Shrimp in Lime Sauce, Flambeed with Rum #61100
medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
salt and pepper
teaspoon finely chopped garlic
tablespoon minced fresh ginger
tablespoon vegetable oil
cup dark rum
cup coconut milk, plus
tablespoons coconut milk
cup 35% cream
lime, zest of
leaves fresh coriander
tablespoon julienned red peppers
20 minutes 10 mins prep
- Season shrimp with salt and pepper.
- In a medium-heavy bottom skillet, over medium heat, saute shrimp, garlic and ginger in oil about 3 minutes, stirring constantly to ensure garlic and ginger do not burn.
- Add rum and flambe shrimp.
- Add lime juice and simmer about 1 minute.
- Remove shrimp from pan and set aside.
- Add coconut milk, 35% cream, cayenne pepper and lime zest to pan; bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat and simmer about 5 minutes, or until sauce thickens slightly.
- Return shrimp to pan until heated through.
- Do not allow sauce to boil.
- Adjust seasoning, if necessary.
- Garnish with coriander and red pepper.
I always work with uncooked shrimp, & am a bit clueless when it comes to the pre-cooked ones.
Would I just add them at the last minute to warm through?
Would they benefit from a marinade in advance?
Anyone tried Costco's version & have a better recipe (using pre-cooked)?
Hmm… I wonder if they meant to write:
¼ tsp of cayenne pepper instead of ¼ lb ?
Oh well – too late to worry about it now !
Who is Luke?
Why is his warm water
better than any other brand?
