From the Test Kitchen

To top hearty, caper-studded farro, you'll sauté verdant kale and juicy tomatoes with garlic and spicy Calabrian chile, which is perfectly balanced by a finishing touch of tangy crème fraîche stirred in with plump shrimp.

Italian Shrimp & Farro with Calabrian Kale & Tomatoes
Title
  • 10 oz Tail-On Shrimp (Peeled & Deveined)
  • ½ cup Semi-Pearled Farro
  • 1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning (Whole Dried Basil, Sage, Oregano, Savory, Rosemary, Thyme & Marjoram)
  • 1½ tsps Calabrian Chile Paste
  • 2 Tbsps Crème Fraîche
  • 4 oz Grape Tomatoes
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 1 Tbsp Capers
  • 6 oz Kale
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Separate the kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then roughly chop the leaves. Halve the tomatoes. Roughly chop the capers.

Cook the farro
2 Cook the farro

Add the farro to the pot of boiling water. Cook, uncovered, 18 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Cover to keep warm.

Cook the shrimp
3 Cook the shrimp

Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels (remove the tails if desired); place in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and enough of the Italian seasoning to coat (you may have extra). Toss to coat. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned shrimp in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly opaque. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until opaque and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

4 Cook the vegetables & make the sauce

In the pan of reserved fond, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the chopped kale; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly wilted. Add 2 tablespoons of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the kale is wilted. Add the halved tomatoes and as much of the chile paste as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the tomatoes are slightly softened. Turn off the heat. Add the crème fraîche and cooked shrimp; stir until combined. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
