Shrimp Caprice

As promised, here's another quick and easy shrimp recipe. Serve with a salad and green peas and you have a nice meal.


Shell and clean 1 lb of cooked or frozen shrimp. Make a medium cream sauce using 4 tablespoons of butter, 4 tablespoons flour, and 2 cups of chicken broth (made with 2 cups of water and 2 chicken bouillon cubes). Cook until thickened. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt, a little pepper, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 teaspoon grated onion, and 1 teaspoon fresh dill, 1/4 teaspoon or dried dill OR 1/4 teaspoon dill seeds. Dill really gives this dish its special flavor. Add shrimp to sauce. Reseason to taste. Serve over freshly cooked rice.

* From the cookbook - "Quick and Easy Meals for Two" by Louella G. Shouer. I've had this book since I married the first time, so over 27 years. This is about the only recipe I've made consistently out of the book.
