Our fast take on an Italian-American classic. Francese is usually made with battered chicken or veal but shrimp is even more delicious in the buttery lemon and white wine sauce.

  • Whisk together broth, wine, and lemon juice; set aside. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Swirl in oil, then butter. Cook shrimp in 2 single-layer batches, adding more oil between batches as needed, until golden, about 1 1/2 minutes on each side; transfer each batch to a plate when done. Pour broth mixture into skillet and cook, swirling skillet, until reduced by half, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat, add lemon slices and parsley, and pour over shrimp. Serve immediately.

I made the Shrimp Franchese. It was easy and delicious. I would recommend keeping the shrimp warm in the oven or in another pan because pouring the sauce over them makes the batter soggy. Would definitely make this GIn.
