Ingredients

  • 2 lbs shrimp, raw, peeled
  • 1/2 lb CannaButter
  • 1 cup shallots, chopped
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1/2 chopped parsley
  • Black pepper
  • Fresh lemon
  • 2 ea garlic cloves, minced

Directions

  1. Peel the shells off the shrimp.
  2. Heat a large saute pan with a 2 tablespoons of oil and cook shrimp in small batches. When one batch has finished cooking remove shrimp from pan and place on a plate to the side.
  3. After cooking the shrimp, add the butter to the pan and cook shallots in remaining oil over medium heat for a few minutes. We don’t want any color here.
  4. Now add the garlic and cook for one minute stirring constantly. Once the garlic has smelled up the room you will add white wine and reduce by 1/2 to 3/4 depending on your preference.
  5. To finish you will swirl the remaining CannaButter into the pan and add the shrimp. Your pan should be on low now for your initial first taste. 
  6. Season with salt and some lemon juice if you wish.
