This is Michael Chiarello's recipe from the food network. I modified it slighlty (took out dried parsley, substituted Great Northern Beans for Canellini, and omitted extra drizzling of olive oil). I have made it my way before - and I loved it!! This makes 2 good size portions - John & Me! http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/michael-chiarello/tuscan-shrimp-with-white-beans-recipe/index.html

Recipe Directions for Tuscan Shrimp with White Beans

  1. Drain the beans over a bowl and reserve the liquid. Put the white beans in a large skillet with just enough of their liquid to moisten them. Add 1 tablespoons of the olive oil and bring the beans to a low simmer. Keep them warm while you prepare the shrimp.

  2. Heat 2T oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the shrimp, season with salt and cook for about 1 minute, tossing frequently. Remove the shrimp with tongs to a bowl. Add the garlic to the pan and saute until the garlic browns. Add chili flakes and cook for 1 minute. Add the tomato and basil and stir briefly, then add the lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 1 minute, and then stir in the shrimp. Toss well and cook briefly to reheat the shrimp. Remove the shrimp mixture to a plate.

  3. Spoon the white beans on a platter or individual plates and top with the shrimp. Serve warm.
