Serve this great tasting shrimp over rice, puff pastry shells, or on toast points. Add a salad or steamed vegetables for a fabulous meal.


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms, optional
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 dash nutmeg
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 3 tablespoons dry sherry
  • 2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups peeled and cooked shrimp (about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds in shell)


In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. If using mushrooms, saute, stirring, until golden. Blend in flour and seasonings. Cook, stirring, for about 1 minute. Gradually add half-and-half and sherry; cook until thickened and smooth, stirring constantly. Stir about 1/3 of the hot sauce into the egg yolks, then pour the egg yolk-sauce mixture into the remaining sauce in the saucepan. Add shrimp and heat through, stirring constantly. Serve in pastry shells or over rice.

Serves 4.

I made some exceptions, Member ramon56

First I used fresh shrimp, extra butter and sauteed the shells in that. After flavoring the butter and removing the shells I cooked the shrimp in the same butter. After removing the cooked shrimp I followed the recipe as stated with the notable exception of more cayenne and a tempered egg yolk for additional richness. I followed that with additional sherry and cayenne to my own taste. This I served over risotto made with garlic, white wine, chicken broth and fontina. Yum! :)
