Shrimp Scampi for a full table

The weekends at our house have the doors swinging! Because we have company coming to spend time with grandparents, or others just coming in to enjoy the woods, river and walk. I love to have them around, and I love to sit at the table over talk of the day, laughter over antics and just plain joy being shared. We had Shrimp Scampi with our latest crew. I wanted a fish meal and something out of the ordinary. I found it!
I doubled this for 8 servings.
This is a delicious meal, yet it takes very little time to prepare.
2 pounds medium to large shrimp
3 cloves garlic, pressed
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 stick butter
1/4 cup olive oil
1 t dried parsley
1/2 cup finely minced onion
salt and pepper to taste
Shell shrimp if using fresh, or if frozen place in a colander and run under cool water until all ice is gone. I use my broiler pan base (with out the slotted part). Place shrimp in pan, butter, oil and all remaining ingredients. Place under the broiler for 4 minutes. Remove, stir and if shrimp are not pink... place back in for 2 more minutes. Do not overcook.

Serve this over rice. The garlicky sauce is wonderful.


  1. I have to say that I was part of the "last crew" that enjoyed this meal around my mom's table and this was DELICIOUS! Even my 6 year-old ... who is not a shrimp fan loved this. This meal reminded me that I DO love shrimp ... when it is prepared right.

  2. This was certainly a big hit! Watching the younger kids enjoying it was so much fun. I am sure you will be asked to deliver this wonderful meal again in the very near future!
