Shrimp Scampi

This is a very easy recipe and makes any person look like a 4 star chef.


2 cloves garlic (shaved extra thin)
1/2 stick butter
1 tablespoon parsly (chopped)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound shrimp (shell off)
Salt & Pepper to taste
Optional Lemon Wedges


Like I said, this is extremely easy. Pre heat your oven to 350. In a shallow oven proof dish arrange your shrimp so that there is a single even layer. Arrange the shaved garlic evenly over the shrimp. Cut the butter into small pieces and evenly distribute over the shrimp and garlic. Also pour the olive oil over the shrimp. Sprinkle with Salt and Pepper. Put the shrimp into the oven for 12 minutes or just until they turn pink. Take the shrimp out of the oven and sprinkle with the parsley. Let the Shrimp set in the pan for carry over cooking. Serve warm with the lemon wedges.
