Shrimp Scampi

  • 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 the shrimp and set aside. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the garlic 1 or 2 minutes or until softened but not browned. Add the shrimp, green onions, wine and lemon juice; cook until the shrimp are pink and firm, about 1 to 2 minutes on each side.

Do not overcook. Add the chopped parsley and salt and pepper before serving. Garnish with the lemon slices and parsley sprigs, if desired.
