Entrée – Seafood
Shrimp Scampi




Yield: two portions

Ingredients:

12 each large shrimp, raw, tail shell, feet shell and sand vein removed
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. clarified butter
1 Tbsp. fresh chopped garlic
1/4 c. brandy or white wine (optional)
2 Tbsp. fresh chopped parsley
as needed salt and ground black pepper



Procedure:
Heat a large sauté pan over high heat. Add the olive oil and the butter. Add the shrimp, tossing repeatedly for about 3 minutes until the shrimp are cooked on all sides.

Add the garlic and cook an additional 30 seconds.

Add the brandy or white wine away from the heat source. Return to the heat and allow the alcohol to burn off and dissipate (this takes about 30 seconds).

Add the fresh chopped parsley and salt and pepper.

Serve immediately with your favorite rice or pasta.
