Let me get a count of hands. How many of you learned to cook from watching food TV? Come on, it’s okay, you can admit your love for it. There is no shame.
For you see, when I still had cable if the TV was on and I was home alone you were more than likely to catch me watching a cooking show. PBS, Food Network, Bravo, Create. You name it, I watched something from there. I tell you, that’s the one thing that streaming television hasn’t caught up with yet, cooking shows! Get with the program!
Anyhoo, the reason for my little tangent above is because #SundaySupper is cooking recipes from our favorite celebrity chef this week! Woo! Fun times! I know I pretty much do my own thing here, but you should see my cookbook collection. It’s large, and that reminds me, I have more to add to my Amazon wishlist. I do have a birthday coming up and Chanukah and Christmas!
The big question though, who do I pick? I’ve covered Julia pretty extensively, I could do a Alton Brown recipe, or maybe actually cook from Michael Psilakis’ book instead of looking at it (seriously How to Roast a Lamb is a beautiful book), in the end I went with a recipe I’ve made many times and from someone who just brings joy Ina Garten – The Barefoot Contessa!
I love her baked shrimp scampi, it’s so easy, the sauce is delicious and perfect spooned over some pasta or rice and the shrimp ends up cooked perfect each time! I’ve made some modifications from her original recipe but you can see hers here.
- 1 pound extra large shrimp, peeled, deveined and butterflied
- 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- ¼ cup dry white wine
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt and black pepper
- pinch of red pepper flakes
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
- ¼ cup shallots, finely minced
- 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, thyme and sage (about a sprig or two of each) finely chopped
- zest and juice from 1 lemon
- 1 large egg yolk
- ⅔ cup panko breadcrumbs
- Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees F.
- In an oval gratin bowl, starting on the outside line your shrimp so the tails are facing up and work your way around to the inside.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, wine, salt, and peppers. Pour over the prepared shrimp and set aside.
- In another small bowl, mash together the butter, shallots, herbs, lemon juice and zest, egg yolk and panko breadcrumbs.
- Spread the butter mixture evenly over the shrimp (it should cover everything) and bake for 10-12 minutes. If you'd like a crisper crust, bake under the broiler for an additional minute.
- Remove from the oven and serve immediately with angel hair pasta or rice pilaf, spooning the sauce over the pasta or rice.
