Bubba Gump Copycat Recipe
12 medium shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails on
4 ounces uncooked rigatoni pasta
1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 cup diced Roma tomatoes
1 tablespoon thinly sliced green onion
1 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese
Sweet Tequila Marinade:
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tablespoon tequila
2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
2 1/2 cups chicken stock
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
pinch white pepper
Marinate Shrimp: Thread shrimp onto 4 bamboo skewers. Combine marinade ingredients and brush generously over shrimp; reserving some marinade for basting. Let shrimp marinate at least 30 minutes, refrigerated.
Veloute Sauce: Bring chicken stock to boil in small saucepan; remove from heat. Melt butter in saucepan and add flour, salt and pepper. Stir until thoroughly blended, about 2 minutes. Gradually add hot stock, stirring until sauce boils and thickens. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes or until reduced
by about half. Strain into small bowl.
Bring pot of water to boil and add pasta. Cook until al dente, or according to instructions on package. Drain.
Grill shrimp over medium heat, turning at least once and basting with marinade each turn. Shrimp is done when medium-rare. In a skillet, saute garlic in butter. Stir in lemon juice, lemon peel and parsley. Stir in Veloute Sauce. Add cooked pasta and stir gently until sauce just starts to thicken. Add tomatoes, toss to incorporate and remove from heat. Remove cooked shrimp from skewers and place on top of pasta. Sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese and green onion.
