Cumin Coated Shrimp with a Parsley Lemon Sauce
Author: 
Recipe type: Dinner
Serves: 2
 

Ingredients
  • for LEMON PARSLEY SAUCE:
  • 2 cups of parsley
  • ½ a small onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1½ tablespoons of lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of chili flakes
  • for CUMIN SHRIMP:
  • ½ to ¾ lbs. of fresh or thawed frozen shrimp (1/4-1/2 lbs. per serving)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Kosher salt
  • Olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • Lemon juice
  • Sauvignon blanc

Instructions
  1. for LEMON PARSLEY SAUCE:
  2. Mix all of the ingredients in a blender until smooth.
  3. Makes approximately 1 cup.
  4. for CUMIN SHRIMP:
  5. Heat olive and butter in a saute pan on medium heat until the oil shimmers and the butter bubbles. While the pan heats, pat any excess moisture from shrimp and season with cumin, paprika and a dash of salt. Add shrimp to the pan and cook, flipping once, until nearly done (about 2 minutes per side).
  6. With shrimp still in the pan, deglaze by adding 1-2 tablespoons dry white wine and lemon juice to taste, scraping the pan bottom and stirring the shrimp for another minute or two.
  7. Serve with Launie’s parsley sauce. This sauce is so good that the cumin, paprika, etc. are almost overkill. If you’re not a fan of cumin: 1) I give you the hairy eyeball, but respect the limits of your palette; and 2) you can ignore all of the above ingredients, except the shrimp and the olive oil, and just enjoy the purity of shrimp with an incredible sauce.
