recipe and photograph created by www.finedinings.com

Recipe Type: first course, shrimp, sweet potato, cream, appetizer

Prep Time: 15 min
Total Time: 15 min
Serves: 2


1 large plump sweet potato, peeled, sliced horizontally 3/4-inch thick
2 tablespoon butter, divided
Salt and pepper to taste
2 raw shrimp, shelled, deveined, tails intact (16 - 20 count)
1 tablespoon hazelnuts, toasted, chopped finely
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup heavy cream


Use a cookie cutter of your choice to cut sweet potato slices into an interesting shape, I used a star. Place them in a saucepan and gently boil in salted water. When they are tender but still firm, remove from heat and carefully drain. Transfer cooked sweet potato slices to a skillet over medium heat with 1 tablespoon butter and sauté both sides until nicely brown. Remove from skillet, keep warm with a foil tent.

Coat shrimp with chopped hazelnuts, sauté in same skillet with the remaining 1 tablespoon butter until shrimp turn pink, do not overcook.

Place minced garlic, heavy cream, salt and pepper in a small saucepan, bring to a boil. When the garlic cream sauce forms large bubbles and coats the back of a spoon, remove from heat.

To serve, place a sautéed sweet potato slice on each plate, put a shrimp on top, drizzle with garlic cream sauce and serve.

Wine recommendation: Pinot Gris; Chardonnay
