Step 1Rinse shrimp, then pat dry with paper towels.
Step 2In a large saute pan, warm 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the canola oil over medium-high heat until it starts to ripple. Add the shrimp and stir until just starting to turn pink (about 1 minute). Transfer to a plate and set aside.
Step 3Add remaining 1 tbsp (15 mL) canola oil. Then add shallots to pan and cook until shallots are soft (1 to 2 minutes). Pour in broth and stir in peas, lemon juice and tarragon.
Step 4Return shrimp to pan and let come to a boil; cook until shrimp are cooked through and peas are tender (about 2 minutes).
Step 5To serve, with a slotted spoon, divide shrimp among plates and top evenly with peas and sauce over shrimp.
