Drunken Shrimp Recipe – Skinnytaste

0

Drunken shrimp have just been redesigned. I’m not sure if you can call this drunk as I cut the wine down significantly, but the prawns aren’t 100% sober either.

Drunk shrimp

This drunk shrimp is a little less drunk than most of the recipes – I only use a quarter cup of white wine in combination with clam juice and fresh lemon. The sauce is so flavorful – be sure to serve some crusty bread on the side to soak it up! For more Italian shrimp recipes, try my Shrimp Fra Diavolo and Shrimp Scampi with Broccoli Orzo.

This drunken shrimp recipe combines so many classic Italian ingredients in one dish. DO NOT leave out the anchovy paste, it adds a complex, salty taste that is not fishy. It’s the secret ingredient in many Italian sauces, and this one is no different. This dish also has capers, garlic, parsley, and red pepper flakes. If you’re not a fan of spicy foods, skip the crushed red pepper.

Can you drink wine while cooking?

Yes! As always, when cooking with wine, the rule of thumb is to use the wine you are drinking. I always have Pinot Grigio on hand, so that’s what I used in this recipe. Don’t use cooking wine if a recipe calls for wine – it’s not the same.

If you’re not a wine drinker, buy a small bottle just for cooking and keep it in your refrigerator. If you have leftover wine, you can freeze it in an ice cube tray. After freezing the cubes, store them in a plastic container the next time a recipe calls for wine.

What to serve with drunk shrimp

My favorite meal is drunk prawns in a bowl with a crusty piece of bread to dip in the sauce. This shrimp also goes well with your favorite pasta such as orzo or spaghetti.

Serve the prawns with broccolini or wilted spinach with garlic and oil or a salad like a caprese salad as a side dish.
