What a novel way to quickly get a company fancy dinner on the table. Creating an almond-flavored liqueur sauce, makes our Fast Amaretto Shrimp a tasty tempter.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1/3 cup amaretto (almond-flavored liqueur)
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails left on
What To Do:
  1. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add amaretto, almonds, sugar, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper and stir until sugar dissolves.

  2. Add shrimp and cook 3 to 5 minutes, just until pink. Serve immediately.
     

 

Notes
  • We like to serve this over wild rice so that we can savor every last bit of the amaretto sauce. Mmm mmm!
