  • 1 1/2 lbs shrimp (about 30)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 tbs unsalted room temperature butter (1 stick)
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 minced shallot
  • S&P
  • 2 tbs fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp fresh rosemary
  • 1 zested lemon and squeezed
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup crushed sliced almonds
  • *optional - 2 tbsp dry white wine
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • De-shell, de-vein, and butterfly your shrimp. Toss in a bowl along with the olive oil, salt and pepper and wine if using.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the butter, garlic, shallot, parsley, rosemary, lemon zest and juice, egg yolk, and almonds.
  • Line your baking dish with your butterflied shrimp in a pretty little design and pour over any remaining olive oil. Spoon your butter/almond mixture on top evenly. Bake 10-12 minutes until bubbling. If you like a browned top, place under broiler for an extra minute or two. Serve immediately.
