His is a fast and easy dish to make, you can serve it over a bed of pasta (if you are not eating Gluten-Free) or simply by itself… either way it is sure to satisfy.
Serves 2 people, you can easily double the recipe if need be
1/2 pound fresh raw shrimp
3 tablespoons butter
2-3 garlic cloves (minced)
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 half or whole Lemon (I like to use 1 half while cooking and squeeze the other half over the finished dish)
1-2 teaspoons Parsley (If you have fresh-use it, otherwise the dried seasoning will work just fine)
Salt and Pepper to Taste
A handful of Parmesan Cheese (I like mine to be shaved, I feel it melts much easier)
Cooking Time: 7-10 minutes
You will need to prepare your shrimp. Cut off the tails and pull off the soft shell casing of the shrimp… Place peeled shrimp in a small bowl and set aside.
This is what your shrimp should look like after cutting off tail and removing soft shell
Next you will melt your butter in a large skillet (remember low-medium heat!) and add your garlic. Saute for about 2 minutes or until you start to see some browning and smell the garlicy aroma. Once your garlic is softened, add the shrimp.
Cook the shrimp, each side for about 1-2 minutes or until it turns pink, season with salt and pepper.
While you are cooking the shrimp, put a microwave-safe plate in the microwave to warm for about 30-45 seconds,take out the plate (carefully!) You will use this to transfer your cooked and seasoned shrimp while you simmer your wine.
After transferring the shrimp to the warm plate, you will add the 1/4 cup white wine and half lemon juice to the pan and allow to simmer for about 30 seconds – 1 minute.
Then, Place your shrimp back in the pan and add the parsley. (If you wish to use some parmesan cheese, this is when you will add it)
Allow this to simmer for about 1 more minute and you are ready to serve!
Plate the Shrimp and pour the remaining sauce over each individual piece (I also like to add a hint of freshly squeezed lemon and a sprinkle of extra parsley for presentation 🙂 )
