Smoky Skillet Shrimp

Recipe: Eshun Mott

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

This recipe is the love child of Shrimp Scampi and a Spanish-style shrimp tapas. Fast, delicious and saucy, these shrimp are best served with crusty bread.


  • 400 g peeled jumbo shrimp (21/30) Salt
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp coarsely chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp hot smoked paprika
  • 1⁄2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 2 tbsp chopped Italian parsley, for garnish


Yield: Serves 4

Cook Shrimp

  1. Pat shrimp dry with paper towels and season well with salt.
  2. In medium frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high heat. Working with half of the shrimp at a time, sauté for 1 to 2 minutes, or until shrimp are pink and just cooked. Remove from pan and reserve.
  3. Add remaining olive oil, garlic and paprika to pan and sauté for 30 seconds, or until lightly golden. Add wine and boil for 1 to 2 minutes, or until wine has reduced by a third. Add sherry vinegar.
  4. Return shrimp to pan, toss in sauce to combine and remove from heat. Sprinkle with parsley and serve hot with bread or crostini.
