Shrimp Scampi

From: Cooking Light

2 tsp olive oil
28 large shrimp, peeled and deveined (about 1 1/2 pounds)
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup dry white wine
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp, saute 1 minute. Add garlic, saute 1 minute. Stir in wine, salt and pepper; bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cook 30 seconds. Add parsley and juice; toss well to coat. Cook 1 minute or until shrimp are done.

What I did differently from the recipe:

What I'll do differently next time:
Not sure, maybe use a little less lemon and a little more garlic.

Thumbs up! What an easy recipe, and very good. It definitely had a sweet flavor to it, but you could be choosy about the wine you use or leave out the lemon to cut down on that.
