Lemon Shrimp with Mushrooms
- Active Time 15m
- Total Time 30m
For this simple combination, the lemon juice and zest add a wonderful fresh taste, while the mushrooms contribute an interesting texture. A fruity Chardonnay with a lot of body would go well with the tang of the lemon and the sweetness of the shrimp.
- 32 to 40 medium shrimp or 24 to 28 large shrimp
- 2 lemons
- 6 tablespoons olive oil
- 7 ounces cremini mushrooms or regular white mushrooms, sliced
- Salt and pepper
- 4 to 5 sprigs of parsley, chopped rough
TO PREPARE THE INGREDIENTS: Peel the shrimp except for the last remaining tail section. Remove the zest of half a lemon with a fine zester, or use a knife, and then cut the zest into fine julienne. Juice the lemons.
TO COOK THE MUSHROOMS AND SHRIMP: In a large skillet set over medium-high heat, saute the mushrooms in 4 tablespoons oil for about 1 minute, until they begin to release their juices. Push to the sides of the pan. Add 2 tablespoons oil and bring it up to temperature. Add the shrimp and sauté about 1 minute on both sides. Season with salt and pepper. Add lemon zest and juice, and parsley. Cover tightly and remove from heat. Let steam about 6 minutes.
