Shrimp Clemenceau

Serves: 4
Hands On Time: 
Total Time: 


1/2 pound fingerling potatoes, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
8 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 sprigs fresh thyme, stripped and chopped
8 ounces frozen sugar snap peas, thawed
1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
Juice of 1 lemon
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into cubes and chilled
Parsley leaves, for serving


Heat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium bowl, toss the potatoes with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and roast in the oven until soft, 15 to 20 minutes.

Heat 2 more tablespoons of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are soft and lightly caramelized, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the potatoes, garlic and thyme and cook until aromatic, about 1 minute. Add the peas and shrimp and cook until the shrimp just turn opaque, about 5 minutes.

Season to taste with salt and pepper and remove from the heat. Add the lemon juice, followed by the butter, and stir until butter has melted and formed a creamy sauce. Serve immediately, garnished with a few parsley leaves.
