I take my lunch to work as often as possible - mainly because I'm dieting. The cafe here is great - seriously great! But fattening most of the time. Today's quickie lunch I accomplished within 30 minutes, and it was awesome! So, I decided to post it. I made just one serving, but this recipe is expanded to serve 6 to 8.

  • 1 1/2 lb
    shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 6 medium
    garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 Tbsp
    butter, unsalted
  • 3/4 c
    white wine, (i used a viognier for this - would also be good with an oak aged chardonnay)
  • 3/4 lb
    chanterelle mushrooms (or any wild mushroom - i just used an equal volume of mushrooms to shrimp)
  • 2 Tbsp
    fresh thyme, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp
    fresh garlic chives, chopped
  • ·
    salt & pepper to taste
  • ·
    black truffle oil (optional)

How to Make Shrimp with Chanterelles


  1. In a skillet: Melt the butter with the garlic, thyme, and chives.
  2. Add the wine. Cook about a minute or two to eliminate the alcohol.
  3. Add the shrimp and chanterelles, and cook until the shrimp turn pink. About 5 minutes or less. Don't overcook the shrimp.
  4. Sprinkle with a few drops of truffle oil before serving.
  5. ALTERNATIVELY while you're getting ready for work (this is what I actually did this morning). Melt the butter with the garlic, thyme, chives and wine in the microwave for 1 minute. Put everything into an oven safe dish. Cover tightly and shake to coat. Turn the oven on to 375. (I used a little toaster oven, but just made a single serving) It's done in 10-15 minutes - about the time it takes to shower.
  6. I steamed some green beans and grabbed a pre-made serving of brown jasmine rice from the freezer to go along with this. Then put it in a container, sprinkled the truffle oil and headed out the door. If I were to serve this for dinner, I'd serve it over some fragrant rice with green beans, which go well with the chanterelles.
