    Here you go Belinda,

    Shrimp Scampi

    1 - 1.5 lbs raw shrimp, cleaned, deveined...I take tail off
    1 stick melted butter
    6 cloves minced or crushed garlic
    fresh parsley
    fresh lemon juice

    Melt butter. Cook shrimp in butter till pink. Remove from pan and set aside, keeping warm - do NOT over cook. To the butter, you can add more butter if need be, add the garlic and parsley and cook only about a NOT BROWN the garlic. Pour the butter sauce over the shrimp and squeeze FRESH LEMON JUICE on.

    Serve w/ the following salad, since I know that you cant have the shrimp over pasta, which is how we like it:

    oranges add a special twist! Prep Time: approx. 25 Minutes.
