A supper idea - I know these are rare for me to post - since I usually post about sweets & desserts (hey, I have to honor my favorite food group!). This, however, is hands-down my husband's favorite supper and it is quick, painless and easy to prepare!
Lemon Shrimp Scampi
salt & pepper
3/4# angel hair pasta, or linguine
2 tbsp. olive oil
3/4 # frozen shrimp (use whatever size you wish) and let them thaw - and remove the tails!
6 tbsp. butter
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 c. lemon juice
2 tbsp. parsley
Cook your pasta to al-dente stage and drain. Set aside. In a large skillet heat the olive oil over med-high heat. Add shrimp and cook until opaque. Put them aside on a plate or in a bowl. Reduce your heat to medium. Add the butter and garlic to the skillet and saute until garlic is soft and fragrant (about 2 minutes. Add lemon juice and cook 1 minute. Season with salt & pepper. Remove from heat and stir in the parsley. Toss all together in a big bowl and serve!
