Number of Servings: 4


    For the Shrimp

    1 pound fresh shrimp, shelled and deveined
    1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
    Salt and pepper to taste

    For the Sauce

    2 tbsp unsalted butter
    1/2 cup finely sliced onions
    1/2 cup dry white wine
    1 cup heavy whipping cream
    2 to 3 pickled Jalapeņo chiles, diced
    1 tbsp pickling liquid from Jalapeņo, or to taste
    1/4 cup sour cream
    Salt and pepper to taste


Serve over rice, pasta, or whatever you like. Can also be used with chicken, beef, or without meat.

This is a spicy dish, so use pepper (black and jalapeno) carefully!


Season shrimp with salt and pepper.

Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat until butter stops foaming and just starts to turn a light brown. Add shrimp, saute until shrimp is thoroughly cooked (light pink, not brown!) If you use pre-cooked shrimp, this won't take long at all, maybe 2-3 minutes. Remove shrimp and set aside.

In the same pan, melt butter and add onion and cook over medium heat until soft.

Add the wine and bring to a boil. Boil wine until reduced to 1 tablespoon, about 4 minutes

Add the cream and chiles. Briskly simmer the mixture until reduced by one-third, about 5 minutes. Stir in the pickling liquid, sour cream, and salt and pepper to taste.

Take the shrimp and mix into the pan, heat through.

Remove from heat.
