Shrimp au gratin with Pistachios
- 20 medium shrimp
- 3 oz pistachios
- 2 oz breadcrumbs
- 2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- salt and pepper to taste
Clean the shrimp by first removing the shell and then the black vein.
Prepare the breadcrumb coating by mixing the breadcrumbs, chopped pistachios, 1 tbs of extra virgin olive oil, and a pinch of salt.
Add a bit of salt and pepper to the shrimp, then coat with the breadcrumb mix. Press the shrimp gently into the mix so that the coating sticks.
Place the coated shrimp in an oven dish lightly coated with olive oil. Sprinkle pistachios over the shrimp and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.
Bake in the oven for 6 minutes at 190° C.
After a brief cooking, the shrimp will have gained a bit of color. Serve them directly from the pan, or on plates garnished with cherry tomatoes and pistachios.
