How To Make quick shrimp scampi

  • 1
    Melt butter in large skillet over medium high heat. Then add chopped shallot and sauté until tender 2-3 minutes. Now add garlic and sauté until aromatic about 30 seconds, DO NOT BROWN as this will make the garlic bitter. Add wine and lemon juice and allow to simmer for 2-3 minutes. As the sauce thickens add shrimp and cook for another 2-3 minutes until shrimp are pink. Remove from heat and add parsley, salt, and pepper. Can be served over noodles, rice, or just by it's self.
