Shrimp Scampi

QUICK RECIPE

sh8

With a salad as a meal or as a starter, this is a tasty concoction.  Simply melt a couple tablespoons of butter in a pan with 4 cloves of garlic.  Don’t over cook the garlic or it will take away from that nice garlicky flavour.  Add 1/2 C of white wine and simmer for a few minutes to reduce.  You also have the option to add a bit of heat with some spicy pepper paste of your choice.  Voila!  Your sauce is ready.

20 prawns are added to the sauce for a few more minutes until they change to a pnk colour.  Season with some salt.

Top with a bit of fresh parsley and serve with some nice crusty bread for the sauce and lemon for a bit of acidity.
