Shrimp with Mustard
6 to 8 medium shrimp per person
Season the shrimp with salt and pepper. Using two large sauté
pans, heat the oil until it begins to smoke. Over very high heat, sauté' the shrimp for 6
to 7 minutes. Transfer to a warm plate, set aside, and keep warm. To each
sauté pan add
1 minced shallot and 1 tablespoon minced tarragon. Sauté for 2 to 3 minutes. Deglaze each pan
with the Chardonnay and then combine the sauce in one pan. Add the cream and reduce the
sauce until it coats the back of a spoon. Whisk in the butter, one small piece at a time.
Whisk in the mustard, just at the last minute Do not let the sauce boil, or the mustard
will become grainy. Correct seasoning to taste. Serves 6.
