El Gaucho’s Legendary Wicked Shrimp Recipe
Steak is what El Gaucho is known for, but other menu items have earned a stellar reputation and become guest favorites over the years. One of these dishes is our Wicked Shrimp. Sautéed by an expert chef and delivered by a tux-clad waiter, it is always a treat to enjoy in our restaurants, but now you can impress your friends and make this delicious dish at home.
El Gaucho Wicked Shrimp
1 lb. Wild Sea of Cortez Prawns – size 16s-20’s
¼ lb. butter
1 ½ tsp., Garlic, minced
1 ½ tsp. Lee & Perrins Sauce
1 1/3 Tbs. El Gaucho Wicked Spice*
½ c. Shrimp or Fish Stock
¼ c. Beer
Grilled Tuscan Bread Slices
Melt ½ of the butter in a skillet on med-high heat. Add garlic, Lee & Perrins sauce, Wicked Spice, and Prawns, and sauté for 2-3 mins. Add beer and stock, cook 2 minutes, and swirl in remaining butter. Serve in a bowl or on a platter with Grilled Tuscan bread slices.
El Gaucho’s proprietary Seasoning and Wicked Spice, used to season many dishes in our restaurants, were created and inspired by the open-coal-pit cooking techniques used by the rough, rugged, and highly regarded cowboys of the vast Pampas Argentina grasslands. These spices will add a deliciously robust kick to all your favorite dishes. A word of caution – treat the Wicked Spice just like the red chili flakes, as they have similar heat intensity.
Our signature spices are available for purchase through our website at ElGaucho.com/El-Gaucho-Spices. They make great hostess or holiday gifts that any aspiring chef will enjoy. Treat yourself or someone you know to the unforgettable El Gaucho culinary experience…at home!
