Polish Style Shrimp

Polish Cookery lists this recipe as ‘Crayfish Polish Style.’ It’s a little hard to come by crayfish where I live, but this recipe works perfectly well with shrimp as well. I imagine any type of shellfish would do well: lobster, langoustines or what have you. A simple recipe of shrimp simmered in sour cream then thickened with bread crumbs and seasoned with dill. But, surprisingly effective. I made this as a side dish to accompany some potato latkes and was not disappointed!


30 small cocktail shrimp, cooked and cleaned
1 tbsp butter
2 cups sour cream
2 tbsp bread crumbs
2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped


  1. Saute your pre-cleaned shrimp in butter. If using raw shrimp, cook until pink.
  2. Season with salt and pepper and then add sour cream, bread crumbs and dill. Cover and simmer under very low heat for 10-15 minutes.
