About this Recipe

I find this to be one of the most wonderfully tasting appetizers to serve to guest when entertaining. Simple to make and I find it works best when served with crusty Italian bread.


3 tbsp olive oil
4 tsp 4 large cloves garlic, minced
.33 cup 2 medium shallots, thinly sliced
.5 cup of salted butter (1 stick)
1.5 lbs large shrimp (about 24), peeled and deveined
28 oz 2 (14-ounce) can artichoke hearts, rinsed, drained, and halved
.66 cup dry white wine
.33 cup 1 lemon, juiced
2 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, plus more for garnish
.5 tsp salt
.25 tsp freshly ground black pepper
crusty Italian bread


Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shallots and garlic and cook, stirring until softened but not browned, 2 minutes. Add the butter and when melted add artichoke hearts and cook for 4 minutes. Add the wine and reduce it by half under medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and cook until the shrimp are half cooked, add the lemon Juice and cook for another 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the parsley, salt and pepper.

Divide among 6 plates, garnish with additional parsley, and serve.

Best served with crusty rustic Italian bread.
