Directions for: Shrimp Stir-Fry


1 Tbsp butter

1 Tbsp olive oil

2 lb(s) jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails on

4 cloves garlic, minced

2 large zucchini, diced

2 large ears corn, kernels removed

¾ cup red grape tomatoes, sliced in 1/2 lengthwise

¾ cup yellow grape tomatoes, sliced in 1/2 lengthwise

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

12 - 18 fresh basil leaves, cut in chiffonade

Parmesan shavings

Juice of 1 lemon

Rice or pasta, for serving, optional


1. Melt the butter with the olive oil in a large skillet over a medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and garlic, then saute until the shrimp are opaque, about 3 minutes. Remove the shrimp to a plate.

2. Increase the heat to high, then throw in the zucchini. Stir it around for about 45 seconds, then scoot the zucchini to the edges of the pan. Throw in the corn and cook it for a minute, then push it to the edges of the pan. Throw in the grape tomatoes, stir them around for a minute, then sprinkle on some salt and pepper to taste.

3. Then throw the shrimp back in. Stir everything around for about 45 seconds, or until it's all combined and hot. Then pour it onto a big platter.

4. Sprinkle on the fresh basil and some Parmesan shavings then ... this is the best part ... squeeze the lemon all over the top. This adds a wonderful, indescribable freshness.

5. You can serve this with rice, with pasta or it's just perfect on its own.
