Shrimp & Farmers’ Market Vegetable Sauté


1 pound 12 – 15 count pink Florida shrimp, peeled, deveined – tails left on

½ teaspoon smoked paprika

½ teaspoon dried oregano

¼ teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper

1 tablespoon raw honey

1 tablespoon sherry vinegar

2 tablespoons filtered water

2 teaspoons French Brandy

1 ⅓ cups sliced small fresh peppers, I chose “Candy Cane” striped variety

⅓ cup red scallions, thinly sliced (can use shallots or red onion)

1 large ear bi-color corn, kernals cut from cob, 1 cup

8 – 12 thin sliced jalapeño pepper, (rounds)

1 medium fresh garlic clove, peeled, thinly sliced

1 tablespoon unsalted organic butter

1 ½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons fresh herb sprigs, basil, oregano or parsley



Wash and pat dry shrimp. Add to a plate or bowl to hold. Add smoked paprika, oregano and pepper, mix in well to coat.


Heat a large 14″ pan with 1 T. extra virgin olive oil over low-medium heat.
When warm, add the shrimp and cook, stirring until just firm and cooked through, about 4 minutes. Do not overcook.
Hint: Cook over a low-moderate heat, shrimp should cook but not become golden.


Remove to a clean plate. Season liberally with sea salt, mix in.


Add honey, vinegar and salt and set aside.


Add 2 t. olive oil, and peppers to the pan – sauté for 2 minutes. Add corn kernels, scallion, jalapeño and garlic. Continue sautéing for 3 minutes until vegetables are crisp tender.


Add the shrimp – and all the gathered juices to the pan. Add the honey mixture and cook over moderate heat to blend all the flavors for 3 minutes.
Add the butter, swirl to melt.
Remove from heat. Taste for salt. Add fresh herbs and serve.


Nice side dishes would be a rice or quinoa pilaf.
