Recipe by Diana Rattray

Shrimp Scampi is a very popular southern-style way to prepare shrimp. Serve this wonderful scampi as a first course or serve with hot cooked rice or angel hair pasta and a salad for a complete meal.


1 1/2 pounds large shrimp (about 16 to 24)
1/3 cup clarified butter
4 tablespoons minced garlic
6 green onions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup dry white wine
2 tablespoons lemon juice, fresh if possible
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
salt and pepper, to taste


Rinse shrimp and set aside. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook garlic for one or two minutes or until softened but not browned. Add shrimp, green onions, wine, and lemon juice; cook until shrimp are pink and firm, about one to two minutes on each side. Do not overcook. Add chopped parsley and salt and pepper before serving. Garnish with lemon slices and parsley sprigs if desired.
Serves four as a main dish or eight as a first course.

Cook Time: 1 hour
