How to make it
- If you like it spicey as we do. Add crushed peppers. I always crush them in my hand before adding them.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until softened but not browned, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the wine and lemon juice and cook for another 2 minutes. As the sauce thickens, add the shrimp and cook for about 1 to 2 minutes making sure not to over-cook them. As a final touch, add the parsley and season with salt and pepper.
- To serve, cook your favorite pasta and top with shrimp and sauce. Garnish with lemon slices, and chopped parsley. Or just eat it with fresh crusty bread or garlic bread...yumm
- sometimes we double the sauce.
- Sometimes we just make the scampi and serve it with garlic bread and eat it as an appitizer.
- Pass the wine!
