DIRECTIONS

STEP 1

Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with paprika, sea salt, and black pepper.

STEP 2

Heat a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat and add the duck fat. Cook the shrimp on both sides until lightly browned, about 60 seconds per side. Remove the shrimp to a plate to rest.

STEP 3

Move the heat down to medium and add the shallots and garlic to the remaining duck fat. Saute briefly until softened, about 2-3 minutes. Add the white wine to deglaze the pan, scraping any brown bits from the bottom. 

STEP 4

Add the lemon juice, sea salt, black pepper, and heavy cream (or coconut milk).  Stir well and bring to a low simmer.  Add the spiralized daikon (or turnip) and cook until just softened about 3 minutes.  Add the shrimp and remove the pan from the heat.  Best enjoyed immediately.
