Lemon Butter Sauce:

Place the shrimp mixture in a bowl, and let cool a moment. In the pan place the onion and 2 Tbsp. of the butter. Let the onions saute till they are lightly brown. Do not over cook, as it can give the dish a burnt taste. Add the rest of the butter and lemon zest. Keep on Low heat till the butter is melted and the lemon zest has infused into the butter. Add the Italian Parsley, cover and remove from heat.
In a food processor put in the Italian Parsley and pulse till chopped. Add in the pine nuts, and pulse another 4 times. Add in the sauteed shrimp mixture, and pulse another 4 times. Add in the Egg and pulse again. Remove from the food processor bowl and add the ricotta cheese. Mix. Salt and pepper to taste. Remember you want some texture in this mix.
