What's better than an easy shrimp scampi recipe that has only a few key ingredients, one being wine...can it get much better?
Servings: 2
Author: Stephanie Conn
Ingredients
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 cloves garlic (less if you're not a huge garlic fan like me)
  • 1 lb fresh, deveined shrimp
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine (or chicken stock)
  • herb blend - see Wildtree link
Instructions
  1. If the shrimp have shells on, peel them off and lay out on a flat surface, such as a cutting board.

  2. Sprinkle a combination of the herb blend on both sides of the shrimp.

  3. On medium heat, melt the butter in a medium saute pan.

  4. Once frothy, add the garlic and stir around until fragrant.

  5. Pour in 1/4 cup dry white wine (or chicken stock) and let simmer for just a few seconds.

  6. Add the shrimp to the pan quickly. They cook fast and you want them to all cook at the same time.

  7. Let the shrimp sit for about 2 minutes, then flip to cook the other side. You want them to turn pink and be opaque looking.

  8. Put the cooked shrimp in a bowl for serving. I sprinkle a little grated Parmesan cheese on top.
