Shrimp in Green Sauce Print Email

You'll make far more broth than you need here, and it's worth saving, because it's wonderful as part of the liquid used when making risotto or fish stews.

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
6 scallions, trimmed and chopped
1 cup parsley, leaves and thin stems
2 pounds shrimp, peeled
Salt and pepper to taste

1/3 cup stock (shrimp, fish or chicken) or white wine or water.1/3 cup stock (shrimp, fish or chicken) or white wine or water.

Heat oven to 500 degrees. Combine garlic and oil in a small food processor and blend until smooth, scraping down sides as necessary. Add scallions and parsley and pulse until mixture is minced. Toss with shrimp, salt, pepper and chilies.

Put shrimp in a large roasting pan. Add liquid and place pan in oven. Roast, stirring once, until mixture is bubbly and hot, and shrimp all pink, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve. Yield 4 servings Time 30 minutes Source: The New York Times
