Mario's Weekend Cooking Challenge: Shrimp with Cilantro Cream Sauce

Mario's Weekend Cooking Challenge is a Facebook Group for people to get together, once a month and cook the same recipe, compare notes and discuss outcomes. It is put together by Mario Bosquez host of "Living Today" on Martha Stewart Living Radio, Sirius 112 & XM 157


This month's cooking challenge recipe is Shrimp with Cilantro Cream Sauce and is courtesy of chef Andrew Wild of the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone. Get the complete recipe here: Shrimp with Cilantro Cream Sauce.


Aside from peeling and cleaning the shrimp and a little chopping of the vegetables, this took less than 20 minutes from start to finish!
Ingredients for this dish are fresh shrimp, avocado oil, cilantro stems & leaves, onion, a poblano chile, garlic, oregano, cumin, cream & lime juice.

In a large pan, heat the avocado oil, add the poblano, onions and garlic. Cook until lightly golden and tender.


Add the cilantro stems, oregano and cumin.


Add the cream and bring to a boil. Cook until the cream has reduced to about 2/3rds and thickened slightly.

Add the shrimp and cook for about 2 minutes until the shrimp have just turned pink. Stir occasionally to coat shrimp with the sauce.


Remove from the heat and season with lime juice and a little coarse salt. Sprinkle with minced cilantro leaves and either serve as an entree or right from the pan with toothpicks for a unique party dish!
