Cognac Shrimp


A delicious mixture of caramelized shallots sauteed with shrimp and sun-dried tomatoes in a light and creamy cognac sauce. Serve hot with a side of pasta or warm, crusty bread.


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup thinly sliced shallots
  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 dash dried red pepper flakes
  • ¼ cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained and diced
  • ½ cup cognac
  • ½ cup fat free half-and-half


  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.
