"The Illustrated Kitchen Bible: 1,000 Family Recipes from Around the World" by Victoria Blashford-Snell, copyright 2008
|2 tbsp olive oil||1/4 cup creme fraiche or heavy cream|
|4 oz pancetta or slab bacon, diced||2 tbsp fresh lemon juice|
|4 scallions, white and green parts, sliced||salt and freshly ground black pepper|
|2 garlic cloves, minced||3 tbsp freshly shredded Parmesan cheese, to garnish|
|24 large shrimp, peeled and deveined||baby spinach leaves, to garnish|
Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the pancetta and cook for 5 minutes until beginning to brown. Add the scallions and garlic, and cook 3 minutes more, or until the scallions are just beginning to soften.
Add the shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes, until they are almost completely opaque. Add the creme fraiche and bring just to a simmer. Stir in the lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper. Lower the heat and simmer until the shrimp are opaque throughout, about 1 minute.
Transfer to a serving dish. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and garnish with spinach. Serve hot.
