  1. Heat the butter and olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, and saute the garlic and shallots until lightly browned. Stir in shrimp, and season with salt, pepper, and red pepper. Mix in sun-dried tomatoes. Cook and stir 5 minutes, or until shrimp is opaque and lightly browned.
  2. Pour cognac into the skillet, and stir to loosen browned bits from bottom. Reduce heat to low, and stir in half-and-half. Simmer 5 minutes, or until slightly thickened.

I like to substitute a lot. :) Since I didn't have half-and-half, I used evaporated milk (just about 1/3 C) with about 1 tsp. sugar. I also omitted the tomatoes, and used cayenne pepper (just a ...

Gross! Threw it out. What a waste of cognac, which by the way is NOT cheap. Yuck, yuck, yuck!
