Shrimp, Potatoes & Pancetta

Wednesday, June 8, 2011

We had "another go" with the Shrimp, Potatoes & Pancetta recipe from the "I Love Trader Joe's Cookbook" last night with great results.  The hubby actually did it all by his lonesome last night as I was just too tired from a hard week's work.  I normally have no problem catering to his cravings, but last night after I asked what he wanted for dinner, my response was, "You crave it; you make it." And so he did.

Here's the recipe - but go buy the cookbook, too.  You won't regret it:

  • 2 oz diced  pancetta
  • 2 Tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 cubes Trader Joe's frozen garlic cubes
  • 1 lb teeny tiny potatoes (leave whole)
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 lb large shrimp (21-25 per pound)
  • parsley

  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. Heat olive oil in ovenproof saute pan.
  3. Add potatoes and saute over medium high heat till softened and golden, about 15 minutes.
  4. Add the pancetta, garlic, red chile pepper flakes, shrimp and white wine. Season with salt and pepper. Stir.
  5. Place in preheated oven and roast till shrimp are just cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  6. Garnish with chopped parsley.
  7. Serves 4.

He made the food - I took the pictures:
