Shrimp Scampi

As requested, I prepared Dylan one of his new, favorite dishes last night. I made Shrimp Scampi for the first time for the family a month or so ago and everyone loved it. I use to cook this all the time before David and I had kids. In fact, I kind of forgot about this recipe until Dylan encouraged me to cook more dishes with shrimp in it. He loves Shrimp....he could be Bubba Gump's twin, he'll eat shrimp prepared any which way.

Serve this over hot buttered noodles, rice or linguine. Linguine is our favorite choice. Serve with crusty bread and your favorite salad to complete the meal.

Shrimp Scampi

4 TBSP butter
3 TBSP olive oil
1/4 cup white wine
1/2 cup green onions, minced
4 cloves of garlic, minced
juice of 1 lemon
1/4 tsp salt
1 lb. medium raw shrimp, shelled and deveined
zest of 1 lemon
4 TBSP fresh basil, minced
2 TBSP fresh parsley, minced
1 TBSP fresh oregano, minced
Tabasco sauce, dash
Parmesan cheese
lemon wedges

Heat wok over medium heat until hot. Add butter, oil and wine. When butter has melted, add onion, garlic, lemon juice and salt. Stir-fry until onion is limp, about 30 seconds. Turn heat to high; add shrimp. Stir-fry until pink, about 2 minutes. Add lemon zest, parsley, basil and Tabasco sauce. Garnish with Parmesan cheese and lemon wedge to squeeze over each serving.
