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.byDeborahonSaturday, March 28, 2009Military Life:,,,
