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!

Could you use chicken instead

Hi there! Yes, chicken would be a delicious substitution for shrimp in this recipe. The Test Kitchen suggests cooking the chicken by baking or grilling it and then topping it with the sauce. :) Enjoy!

Wow, this one is delicious! No leftovers at all!

Very easy and tasty. It's a keeper.
