Have good fresh shrimp? Want an easy dinner? Make scampi.
Melt butter in a pan big enough to hold your shrimp. Add olive oil, minced garlic, chopped shallots (I keep a jar of dehydrated to make this easy, because I love the flavor), and a sprinkle of parsley.
Vary the oil/butter blend to your taste. More butter is richer, more oil is healthier. You can also add a generous splash of white wine, if you want.
When the pan’s contents are hot and bubbly, put in your peeled shrimp. When they start to turn the color of cooked, turn them over and cook for another two minutes.
That’s it! Serve with salad and good crusty bread for soaking up the sauce.
