Marina Del Rey Killer Shrimp

A recreation of the signature dish from the restaurant of the same name in Los Angeles. While I’ve never been there, a friend has and pronounced this just as good as she remembered.


Serves 2 to 3

  • 2 T rosemary
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1-1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1-1/2 tsp ground cayenne
  • 1-1/2 tsp celery seed
  • 1-1/2 tsp fennel seed
  • 1-1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1 C white wine
  • 2 quarts chicken broth
  • 8 oz clam juice
  • 3 oz tomato paste
  • 1/2 lb butter
  • 4 lemon slices (approx. 1/2 a lemon)
  • 2 lbs shrimp, peeled, de-veined and tails on

Combine the rosemary and fennel seeds and chop coarsely. Place all of the ingredients except the wine and shrimp in a large stock pot. Simmer for about an hour. Add the wine and continue to simmer for another 20 minutes. Add the shrimp and simmer until they are done, about 3 minutes. Adjust seasoning for desired heat level.  Serve in large bowls with plenty of crusty bread to soak up the broth.
