This recipe is a family favorite and, unlike many of our favorites, this one is healthy! My kids love it. It is excellent over spinach pasta: http://www.thriftyfun.com/Spinach-Pasta.html
- 4 tsp olive oil
- 1 1/4 lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined (we make 2 lbs. of shrimp since we have 5 in our family and the kids don't like much sauce with theirs)
- 6 large garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and cook until just opaque in center, about 3 minutes.
- Add garlic and cook stirring for 30 seconds.
- With slotted spoon, transfer shrimp to platter, and place in oven using "keep warm" setting
- Add remaining ingredients to skillet, and bring to a boil. Boil until sauce is reduced by half (I notice from the photo, we left out the parsley that I'd purchased for this recipe - oops!)
- Add shrimp to sauce at this point, toss, and serve over pasta; or you can serve shrimp and sauce separately allowing everyone to add sauce to taste (a good idea if you have young children).
- 1 cup white wine
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 3 Tbsp. minced garlic
- 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
- salt and pepper to taste
Combine the butter, wine, garlic and shrimp in a pan. Bake in a 350 degree F. oven for about 7 minutes or until the shrimp turns pink. Be careful not to over-cook the shrimp. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Serves 2 to 4
