Shrimp Sautéed in Star Fruit Salsa Recipe

Shrimp Sautéed in Star Fruit Salsa Recipe image by


This simple-to-prepare sauté of shrimp is colorful with bright tropical fruits. Served with just a salad and sweet potato chips, it is a light and easy luncheon or supper.

Heat half of the butter in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add eight shrimp and sautée until they turn opaque, about 30 seconds per side. Set aside, heat the remaining butter in the same pan, and sautée the remaining shrimp. Put the first shrimp back into the pan. Add the fruits and peppers and sautée for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, tossing or stirring gently. Add the wine and stir up the cooked bits from the bottom of the pan. Cook for 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Arrange on plate and criss-cross the chives on the top.
