How to Make Shrimp with Whiskey Tarragon Sauce on French Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat butter in a medium sauce pan and cook onion until soft and translucent. Add garlic and lemon juice.
  2. When garlic is just soft add heavy cream, milk, mustard and tarragon.
    Let sauce cook on med-low heat for 30 minutes to reduce by half, stirring occasionally
  3. In a large skillet heat the butter and add shrimp. Toss with salt, pepper and garlic.
    Cook about 80% through about 1 – 2 minutes (shrimp will continue to cook in sauce).
