We had this last night for dinner and the flavours are truly amazing. It is not difficult to prepare so give it a go at the earliest time.
- 1/4 cup minced onion
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 1/2 lbs. peeled and deveined shrimp
- 1/2 lb. mushrooms, sliced
- 1 tbsp. flour
- 1 1/2 cups sour cream (not the light variety), room temperature
- 1 tsp. salt
- white pepper, to taste
- 1 tbsp. butter
- 1/4-1/2 cup cream (if needed)
In a large frypan saute the onion in 1/4 cup butter until softened.
Add the shrimp and saute for 4-5 minutes until pink and just cooked. Transfer the mixture to a heated dish, and keep warm.
In the same skillet add 1 tbsp. butter and add the mushrooms. Saute over a medium high heat until browned. Sprinkle flour in and cook for another 2 minutes. Reduce the temperature and now stir in the shrimp mixture, sour cream, salt and pepper, stirring for another 2-3 minutes until the shrimp is heated through. Here is where you may need to add the cream, to ensure a smoother sauce. Just DO NOT BOIL.
Add some broad noodles or rice and spoon the mixture over (equally portioned, of course). Pass the crisp green salad and the evening is yours.
If you wish, enjoy a glass of chilled white wine as well. YUM!!!!
