Never made this dish, but the rumor in San Antonio is that Joe Paesano's
wife stole this prior to their divorce, she then proceeded to give it to
anyone who would take it. Don't know if that is true or not, but here is
the recipe. Pre-heat oven to 400. Soak shrimp in 1/2 & 1/2 for at least 30
minutes. Drain and roll shrimp in flour and saute in oil over medium heat
for 5 minutes. Do not turn shrimp. Re- move and place shrimp in baking
dish, sauted side down in pre-heated oven. Turn oven to broil and broil for
5 minutes. For sauce: Mix egg yolk and lemon juice in half the butter and
stir over low heat until melted, take off heat. Add garlic and rest of
butter and stir briskly until butter melts and sauce thickens. (Add small
amount of 1/2 & 1/2 to thicken). Add chives and parsley. That's it for
instructionsI guess common sense would tell you to pour this sauce over
the shrimp and eat it. David in San Antonio FROM: DAVID YOUNGQUIST
