Simple Shrimp Scampi

Did I say that my beef stew was my husband's favorite recipe?
Actually, I think this is his favorite.
This is a simple, elegant, perfectly balanced dish.
Enjoy!


Simple Shrimp Scampi
1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound large shrimp
1/4 c. minced fresh parsley leaves
2 T. juice from 1 lemon
1/2 c. white wine
salt
cayenne pepper

Sauté garlic over medium-low heat about 2 minutes.
Add shrimp and cook while stirring occasionally, about 7 minutes (shrimp will be tough if overcooked). Off heat, stir in parsley, lemon juice, wine, salt and cayenne.
Serve immediately over pasta, rice or julienned zucchini.

You'll want to double this recipe.
It's divine as a cold salad the next day.
