Tasso Shrimp Henican @ Commander's Palace

Serves people


  1. In a pan over medium-low heat, sauté garlic and shallots in a little butter for a minute. Add hot sauce and bring to a boil. Cook until very little liquid is left. Add cream and cook about one more minute.
  2. Remove from the heat and whisk in the softened butter, a little at a time, until it takes on a creamy consistency. This is beurre blanc. Keep warm.
  3. Cut a slit down the back of each shrimp and insert a strip of tasso. Close the slit with a toothpick.
  4. Mix the salt into the flour in a wide bowl. Dust the shrimp with the seasoned flour.
  5. In a skillet, fry the shrimp in oil heated to about 375 degrees. Drain.
  6. Place the cooked shrimp in a bowl with the beurre blanc. Toss to coat.
  7. Spread a thin film of pepper jelly on the bottom of a small dish and arrange three shrimp on each plate. Garnish with pickled okra or pickled green beans.
