1 cup all-purpose flour

4 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

1 teaspoon salt, plus more for seasoning

2 pounds large raw shrimp (13 to 15 per pound), peeled and deveined with tail on

6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter

  1. Put the flour in a shallow bowl. Add 3 tablespoons of the cilantro, 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper and toss to combine. Add the shrimp and toss to coat.
  2. Melt the butter in a large heavy saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and saute until golden brown and just cooked through, 5 minutes. Transfer the shrimp to a plate. Add the wine to the same pan and boil until slightly thickened, 2 minutes. Add the cream, chipotle chiles, Worcestershire sauce and garlic to the pan and boil until slightly reduced, 2 minutes.
