Shrimp Scampi

we were gifted some wonderful fresh prawns straight from the Salish Sea this last week.  Scampi seemed the perfect dish for them.  Scampi has to be one of the easiest dishes ever to make.  Serve it up with some toasted french or sourdough bread and you will have a meal fit for kings.

  • 1 pound large  shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 2-3 Tbsp butter
  • 1-2 T. olive oil
  • Salt
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (less or more to taste)
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice

Heat butter and olive oil together.  Add garlic and shrimp, cook 2 minutes.  Add wine and bring to simmer.  Cook 3 minutes.  Flip shrimp and cook an additional minute.  Add parsley, red pepper flakes, and lemon juice.  Serve!
