Serve this dish with a side dish of garden salad, and white wine (semi-sweet)
You can buy scampi sauce, or you can make your own, which is relatively easy. Here is a recipe you can certainly make at the same time that you prepare the shrimp recipe. Just add it to your dish as instructed above.
One tablespoon olive oil
Two tablespoons garlic finely minced
1 ½ cups white wine – Chardonnay is excellent
One half fresh lemon – squeeze the juice
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Half a cup softened butter
1 tablespoon parsley
Half a cup grated parmesan cheese
In a medium size pan, add the olive oil and heat to medium, stir in garlic, white wine, and lemon juice. Do not brown garlic, keep stirring and remove when the wine has decreased to half. Add Italian seasoning. Reduce heat to low and add butter, taking care the pan is not too hot as it will separate. Add parmesan cheese and seasoned with salt and pepper to taste. Add to the recipe above, as indicated.
