Step 1: Preparing the Shrimp and Portabella Mushroom

First things first, peel and devein the 6 ounces of 51-60 Gulf shrimp. Next, remove the stem and gills from the 1.5-inch portabella mushroom cap and slice it into 1/4-inch pieces.

Step 2: Making the Garlic Butter

To make the garlic butter, mix 2 ounces of softened butter or margarine with 1 teaspoon of minced garlic. You can use homemade or store-bought butter for this recipe. Mix well until combined.

Step 3: Cooking the Shrimp and Portabella Mushroom

In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the shrimp and portabella mushroom slices. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the shrimp is pink and the portabella is tender.

Next, add the garlic butter to the skillet and stir until the shrimp and portabella are coated. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 1-2 minutes.

While the shrimp and portabella are cooking, prepare the Hurricane Sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together 1/3 cup of sweetened coconut milk, 2 teaspoons of lime juice, 1 teaspoon of minced garlic, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin, 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes, and 1/4 teaspoon of white pepper.

Step 5: Combining the Shrimp and Hurricane Sauce

Once the shrimp and portabella are cooked, pour the Hurricane Sauce over the top and stir to combine. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until everything is heated through.

Serve the Hurricane Shrimp hot with rice or as a filling for tacos. For an extra burst of flavor, top with fresh mango salsa or serve with a side of coconut shrimp.

– Garlic Butter: You can use store-bought garlic butter if you don’t have the time to make it from scratch.

– Spiciness: If you prefer a milder flavor, you can omit the red chili pepper flakes. If you want it spicier, you can add more red chili pepper flakes or use a spicier type of chili pepper.

Hurricane shrimp is a versatile dish that can be served in various ways to suit different occasions. If you’re looking for a quick and easy meal, serve it over rice and garnish with sliced scallions and cilantro. The fluffy rice soaks up the creamy coconut sauce with a hint of lime juice, and the succulent shrimp adds a burst of flavor to the dish.

For a more casual setting, hurricane shrimp tacos are a perfect choice. Simply warm the tortillas, fill them with the shrimp mixture, and top them with diced mango, avocado, and a sprinkle of white cheese. The sweetness of the mango complements the spiciness of the shrimp, creating a perfect balance of flavors.

If you’re hosting a party or gathering, hurricane shrimp can make an impressive appetizer. Skewer the shrimp with a portabella mushroom cap and grill them until they’re lightly charred. Serve them with a homemade garlic butter dipping sauce, and watch your guests devour them one by one.

Hurricane shrimp also pairs well with other dishes, such as steamed vegetables or a fresh green salad. The sweetness of the coconut milk and the tanginess of the lime juice make it a great complement to a variety of flavors.

To elevate the dish even further, try pairing it with a glass of white wine or a crisp beer. The acidity of the wine or beer helps cut through the richness of the coconut milk, while enhancing the flavors of the shrimp.

Overall, hurricane shrimp is a dish that’s easy to make and can be served in many ways. Whether you’re looking for a quick meal or an impressive appetizer, hurricane shrimp is sure to impress your guests and leave them wanting more.

The Hurricane Shrimp Recipe is a perfect option for meal prep and make-ahead dishes, as it can be stored and reheated easily without losing its flavors.

To make ahead, simply cook the shrimp and mushroom cap and store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. The garlic butter can also be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge for up to a week. When you’re ready to serve, reheat the shrimp and mushroom cap in the microwave or on the stove, and add the garlic butter.

To store leftovers, keep the cooked shrimp and mushroom cap in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or on the stove until heated through.

If you’re planning to serve the Hurricane Shrimp Recipe at a party or event, you can also prepare the mango dipping sauce ahead of time and store it in the fridge for up to 24 hours. The sauce can be served chilled or at room temperature.

When reheating the shrimp, be careful not to overcook them, as they can become tough and rubbery. To ensure the best results, reheat them in short intervals and stir frequently.

Overall, the Hurricane Shrimp Recipe is a convenient and versatile dish that can be made ahead, stored, and reheated without losing its delicious flavors.

Tips for Perfect Results

To make the most flavorful Hurricane Shrimp, here are some tips that I’ve learned from my experience as a chef.

Firstly, make sure to use the freshest shrimp possible. Look for Gulf shrimp that are peeled and deveined, with a size of 51-60 ounces. This size is perfect for the recipe as they are not too small nor too large. Using fresh shrimp will ensure a sweeter and more succulent taste.

Secondly, don’t overcook the shrimp. Shrimp cook very quickly, so be sure to keep an eye on them while cooking. Overcooking will result in tough and rubbery shrimp. Cook them just until they turn pink and are no longer translucent.

Next, make sure to use homemade garlic butter instead of store-bought. Homemade garlic butter is easy to make and will add a rich and flavorful taste to the shrimp. You can also adjust the amount of garlic according to your preference.

To add depth of flavor to the dish, use fresh lime juice instead of bottled. The acidity and tanginess of fresh lime juice will brighten up the dish and complement the sweetness of the coconut milk.

Lastly, don’t skip the cumin and white pepper. These spices add a subtle earthy flavor and a bit of heat to the dish, making it more complex and interesting. Be sure to use them in moderation, as too much can overpower the other flavors in the dish.

By following these tips, you will be able to create a delicious and flavorful Hurricane Shrimp recipe that will impress everyone at the dinner table.

Hurricane Shrimp Recipe

From Chef Dino Lubbat, Dinotto Ristorante, Chicago, IL. I like that each shrimp looks like a little hurricane.

  • 1/3 cup sweet coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon cumin, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander, ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper, ground
  • 1 lb shrimp (13-15 with tails will work)
  • 8 ounces wheat, shredded & thawed (Kataifi or shred your own Phyllo)
  • 1 mango, sauce Mango Sauce Nice and Tart With Sriracha (Or Without)
  1. Combine coconut milk, lime juice, garlic, chili flakes, cumin, coriander and pepper in a small bowl.
  2. Add shrimp and toss. Marinate for 1 hour or more under refrigeration.
  3. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  4. Unroll the kataifi and separate a small bundle of strands about 1.5 inches wide. Using scissors, cut Kataifi strands to about 8 inches long.
  5. For each shrimp, spread a Kataifi bundle on your work surface and wrap it around each marinated shrimp, leaving the tail uncovered. Wrap freeform or tightly compress for a more compact look.
  6. His recipe calls for deep frying at 350F for 2 minutes each until brown and crispy, then draining on a paper towel.
  7. I prefer to bake at 400F for 8-10 minutes or until the Kataifi is crisp and golden. A little less for smaller shrimp.
  8. Serve with Recipe # 481797 as a dipping sauce.
