Sautéed Buffalo Shrimp with Cucumber-Dill Sauce

by Chef John Greeley

Yields 4 portions

Ingredients

  • 16-20 pieces of Fresh Shrimp (peeled and de-veined)
  • 1 c. Buffalo Sauce* (see recipe)
  • 1 Lemon (cut in half)
  • Wondra Flour
  • Salt to taste
  • Grape Seed or Canola Oil
  • 16-20 Wooden Skewers (for presentation)

Preparation

  1. On stovetop, pre-heat fry pan on medium heat.
  2. Add grape seed oil and lightly coat bottom of pan. (If oil is starting to smoke, pan is too hot!)
  3. Season shrimp with a pinch of salt. Then, coat lightly with Wondra flour and shake off excess.
  4. Place in pan and begin to cook. Generally, this will take 4-5 minutes.
  5. When shrimp begin to get brown, turn each on over and continue to cook an additional 4 minutes. (Do not cover the pan with a lid, this will steam the shrimp.)
  6. When shrimp feel firm to the touch, remove from the pan and cut open to check if it’s fully cooked.
  7. Finally, spoon a light coating of buffalo sauce over all the shrimp in the pan. (You can also do this in a bowl).
  8. Place the hot shrimp on a platter with some cucumber-dill sauce and serve with skewers.
