Shrimp Scampi

Tonight I made shrimp scampi. It was yummy. Its not hard to screw it up. How can you go wrong with butter, lemon, garlic white wine? I don't have much to say about this dish. Took about 15 minutes to make dinner. Usually I serve it with pasta, but we are trying not to eat so much pasta, so we had it with bread and steamed broccoli.

1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 cup butter
2 tbsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic chopped
1/2 cup dry white wine
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

Heat butter and oil in a pan. Add garlic cook until soft and fragrant. Remove garlic from oil with a slotted spoon. Add shrimp, wine and lemon juice. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5-7 minutes, being careful not to overcook the shrimp. When shrimp is done, top with cheese and parsley. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve with pasta, bread or its even great by itself.
