3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice from fresh lemons
1/4 up of dried tarragon (divided)
1 pound of medium or large shrimp (shell on)
2 tablespoons of pure olive oil
1 1/4 teaspoons of sea salt (divided in half)
1/4 teaspoon of cracked grounded black pepper
6 teaspoons of granulated garlic
1/2 a cup of white wine vinegar
1/2 a cup of seafood stock
3 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon of chili powder


Methods


So we can get started making this Shrimp Scallopini Dish, Heat up two tablespoons of olive oil on medium-low heat using a large cast iron skillet heat up the oil until you see it moving around in the pan at this point add the shrimp to the cast iron skillet and let the shrimp sauté for a couple of minutes until they start turning pink season the shrimp with half the sea salt and all the cracked black pepper, Now using a pair of tongues turn over your shrimps and continue sautéing for a couple more minutes.


While the shrimps are still sauteing for the next few minutes add your granulated garlic and chili powder and it keep it sauteing until you start to smell the seasonings. Make sure you move the shrimps' arounds so you can blend in all the flavors we are building now remove the shrimps on to a plate because we don't want to overcook the shrimps.

While the cast iron pan is still hot but on medium-low, Add the 1/2 cup of white wine vinegar to the pan and let it start to simmer add your fresh lemon juice, seafood stock and the remainder of the sea salt along with the 3 tablespoon of butter, Now make sure all the ingredients are blended so we can let the liquids start to reduce so it can become a rich looking sauce.


While the sauce is reducing you going to be looking for the sauce to start looking a shiny when you see that shiny look add your shrimps blend in well sprinkle half of the tarragon into the sauce stir so it can blend in then remove from heat.


Using a slotted spoon grab the shrimps out of the cast-iron pan onto a deep-dish serving platter the pour the remaining of the sauce on the shrimps then add the rest of the tarragon and serve and enjoy.
