  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 was very disappointed with this recipe, I had high hopes for it! I followed the recipe perfectly except that I could not find sun dried tomatoes so I used cherry tomatoes instead. The I also added some peppers for color and mushrooms for flavor. The dish just wasn't impressive, and I was over all disappointed. Not what I expected from an allrecipes recipe.



Loved it, loved it! Easy and quick and taste divine. I served over fettunci pasta with a spinach salad and served with a white zin. No one guessed how easy it was to whip up!

Trying to figure out what to do with some colossal shrimp I had in the freezer, I happened upon this recipe. Am I glad I didn't save them for grilling! Loved, loved, loved it, particularly with the big shrimp. I think they probably worked out better as they take a little longer to cook, and so wouldn't get overcooked in the process. I didn't have cognac so substituted dry sherry, and because I love them, I added capers to the mix. Also, just because I had some on hand, I threw in a handful of grape tomatoes right toward the end. That way they just warmed and didn't pop from the heat. I served it over egg noodles. Thanks for the great take on shrimp!
