Shrimp served with a limoncello sauce over toasted baguettes. I have also doubled the recipe (all but the shrimp) and poured it over pasta or white rice for dinner.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until toasted, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool.

  • Heat oil and butter in a large pan over medium-high heat. Stir in savory, basil, and thyme; cook for 1 minute. Add shallots and cook until transparent, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook, being careful not to burn, about 1 minute more.

  • Saute shrimp in the same pan over medium to medium-high heat until they are bright pink on the outside and the meat is opaque, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer shrimp quickly to a separate dish; do not overcook.

  • Pour limoncello and lemon juice into the same pan and cook over medium heat until mixture is reduced by about half, 7 to 9 minutes. Add heavy cream gradually. Season with salt and pepper. Add shrimp back into the pan and heat, stirring to coat, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Spoon 1 shrimp with sauce onto each baguette slice. Serve.

I make my own Limoncello so was excited to try this. We had it as a meal with a salad. It was wonderful and I want to try it over pasta. Not difficult to make wonderful with a Savignon Blanc. Read More

I poured over rice instead of baguettes. Family ate all of it and wanted more. I made a second batch and they ate that also. Just enough leftovers for a lunch for me the next day. Read More

I've made this twice now...it is extremely popular with both family and friends. After following the recipe I used a crockpot to keep the final product warm for an appetizer party. It was a smash! Read More
