Ingredients
  • 3 cups canned Cannelloni white beans
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 16 large shrimp, peeled (tail left on) and deveined
  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 small serrano chile, thinly sliced or 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 1 cup peeled, seeded and diced fresh tomato, canned or fresh
  • 1 cup whole basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Italian flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • Best-quality extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
Directions

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 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and bring the beans to a low simmer. Keep them warm while you prepare the shrimp.

Heat 1/4 cup 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 the serrano chile or 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 and sprinkle with parsley.

Spoon the white beans on a platter or individual plates. Drizzle them with the best olive oil you have, and then top with the shrimp. Serve warm.

This is one of our favorite shrimp dishes ever! We look for occasions to make it, or just because we feel like. Awesome! I wish your show was on more often. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I watched yoru show on Food Network to find different ways to cook shrimp other than scampi so I decided to try yours out. Only thing I did different was used red pepper flakes instead of serrano chile. Don't like my food to spicy and I added a rib eyed steak on the side and used colossal shrimp. The dish came out realy great. Next time I will add some white wine with the tomatoes but other than that, it was well worth the effort. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Michael: In the south we always have some kind of seafood on the Christmas eve buffet. This year instead of doing a buffet I decided to do this dish on its own for our Christmas eve supper. When I served it to my family they ate it like it was literally their last meal. I had no leftovers at all! I eliminated the serrano chile from the version I prepared as my parents are not ones to eat spicy food. The freshness of the dish is really amazing and I thank you for giving us a new family tradition for preparing Christmas eve supper! Sincerely, Paula F. Houston, Texas item not reviewed by moderator and published

Delicious treatment of meat. Ciabatta or Focaccio with nice spred ...mixed with the meat...great! Want to add...try nice saute of butter, mushrooms and roasted garlic. We ran out of the beans so we checked the freezer. We repeated everything but used Edamame. Thanks Michael.

This was easy and very delicious. I would cut the serrano chile in half if you'd prefer to taste the garlic and shrimp. It was a little much. I can't wait to make it again, without the chile! =) item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was so good. After reading reviews about some thinking the beans were bland I put the tomatoes (a can of chopped tomatoesw/juice) in with the drained beans to cook.I also put the cooked garlic and basil into the beans, not the shrimp, tho I did cook the garlic in the shrimp oil. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I thought this was such a great recipe! The sauce is amazing. The beans could use a touch more flavoring - but you can find creative ways to spice it up! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Great recipe. Be sure to use high quality EVOO to give it the truly tuscan taste. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Outstanding! I think I added a couple of improvements to this great dish. I diced a slice of Pancetta, fried it and added to the Cannelloni beans. Also, I did not like using the canned bean liquid. I rinsed the beans and discarded the liquid. Instead, after shelling the shrimp I used the shells with a bit of water to make a simple shrimp stock and used that to keep the beans moist. No other changes. It had just the right amount of heat to give character to the dish and the beans complement the shrimp perfectly. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Have made this several times and it's absolutely wonderful! One of our favorites! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This dish was very tasty. The white beans completed the dish perfectly. We actually added more shrimp and made it a main course. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish tasted as good as it looked on tv! It received rave reviews. I would suggest that if you prefer something to the White Beans, go with your instincts b/c the White Beans did not do anything to improve the dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent flavor, except a whole serrano was WAY too much. I am going to make again and just use a pinch of red pepper flakes. I like hot food, but this was almost too hot to eat. The beans were a great way to cool it off though! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish not only sounded good but tastes fantastic! Thanks Michael. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fantastic and simple dish. Use more serranos to increase the heat. It's also great over pasta in place of beans. item not reviewed by moderator and published
