We demonstrate that extending the shadow wave function to fermionic systems facilitates to accurately calculate strongly correlated multi-reference systems such as the stretched molecule. This development considerably extends the scope of electronic-structure calculations and enables to efficiently recover the static correlation energy using just a single Slater determinant.
