Today was a great day for me. I received my advance copy of my cookbook.  I guess dreams can come true. This dish is one of my favorite. It is also an easy and quick dish to prepare.

Shrimp Scampi translated is shrimp shrimp. Traditionally scampi

is cooked in garlic and butter. It is an excellent dish served over pasta.

I always serve this with French bread so every drop of sauce can be

mopped up and eaten.

1½ pounds medium Shrimp peeled and deveined

Creole Seasoning

1/3 cup Butter

4 tablespoons Garlic minced

¼ cup Green Onions sliced

¼ cup Dry White Wine

2 tablespoons Lemon Juice

2 tablespoons Fresh Parsley chopped

8 ounces Cooked Pasta cooked al dente

over medium heat. Cook garlic 1 or 2 minutes or until softened but

not browned. Add shrimp, green onions, wine, and lemon juice: cook

until shrimp are pink and firm, about 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Do 
not overcook. Add parsley and serve over pasta. 
Coat shrimp with Creole seasoning. Heat butter in a large skillet

Enjoy!!!
