Alice’s Special Shrimp

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 33
Yield: 1 Serving


1 tablespoon or more butter
5 raw jumbo shrimp, shelled and deveined
4 black olives, pitted
4 green olives, pitted
4 ripe cherry tomatoes
3 - 4 artichoke hearts (packed in oil, lightly drained)
1 handful freshly chopped scallion and parsley
1 tablespoon sherry
generous pinch of crumbled dried tarragon
one portion of cooked orzo pasta


Melt the butter in a sauté pan over fairly high heat. Toss in the remaining ingredients, except the orzo, all at once. Let it all sizzle up, turning the shrimp once, and immediately serve over the orzo the moment the shrimp are cooked. It takes just minutes.

In the restaurant, each portion was cooked to order in its own little pan. Four or so portions can be prepared at a time in a 12-inch or larger pan. The ingredients should not be crowded.
