Patriarche Blanc

Shrimp in a Saffron Cream Sauce

All Amounts Are Estimates...Taste For Proper Amounts Before Using!


  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 bottle Patriarche Blanc
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • salt


  • 1lb shrimp
  • butter
  • salt
  • brandy

Start with a pint of heavy whipping cream and reduce until thick along with a pinch of saffron. Meanwhile reduce some Patriarche Blanc (about a 1/4 bottle) until it tastes as tart as lemon juice. Add your reduced wine until you get the desired acidity in your sauce (I'm going to guess a tablespoon or two but it depends on how reduced your wine is) When you're there make sure your heat is off and add some butter (about 2 tablespoon or more if you like) and wisk. If it boils after you add the butter it will break. Season with salt.. ***You can replace the wine with lemon juice if you'd like.

Add your butter to a very hot pan. When the butter starts to brown add the shrimp and a little salt. Cook until done and finish with a little brandy for flavor and SHOW (be careful). Top with sauce and enjoy.
