1 ¼ lb large shrimp or prawns, peeled and deveined (if frozen, be sure to thaw first)
1 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 to 2 tsp smoked Spanish paprika
½ tsp each salt and pepper
½ tsp ground coriander
¼ tsp cayenne
¼ tsp sugar
1 tbsp butter I prefer to use ghee clarified butter
3 tbsp Coronado Taste of Oil Garlic Olive Oil
½ red onion, thinly sliced
4 garlic cloves, chopped
½ green bell pepper and ½ yellow bell pepper, cored and sliced
1 cup canned diced tomato
⅓ cup chicken or vegetable broth
2 tbsp dry white wine
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
⅓ cup chopped parsley leaves
Pat the shrimp dry and place it in a large bowl. Add the flour, smoked paprika, salt and pepper, coriander, cayenne, and sugar. Toss until the shrimp is well-coated.
In a large cast iron skillet, melt the butter with the olive oil over medium heat. Add the shallots and garlic. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring regularly, until fragrant (be sure not to burn the garlic.) Add the bell peppers and cook another 4 minutes or so, tossing occasionally.
Now add the shrimp. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, then add the diced tomatoes, broth, white wine and lemon juice. Cook for a couple more minutes or until the shrimp turns bright orange.
Finally, stir in the chopped fresh parsley and serve!
