Lidia Bastianich’s Shrimp Scampi (Recipe Review)

Add some more olive oil to the pan and add your shallot paste. Cook until the paste starts sticking to the pan, then add wine, lemon juice, butter, water, salt, and the reserved thyme. Bring the sauce to a boil and cook until reduced by half. Whisk in additional butter, add the seared shrimp to the sauce, and let them simmer until fully cooked. To finish the sauce, stir in chopped parsley and add some breadcrumbs to thicken it up. (The breadcrumbs are listed as optional, but I ended up adding them.)
