    Bobbie's Note:

    Buttery prawns, garlic and lemon juice! What could be more divine? And it's so easy to put together. Don't forget some crusty bread to sop up the garlic butter sauce.

    1. 1
      Pat shrimp dry with paper towels (I like to butterfly them). Set aside.
    2. 2
      Melt butter in wide frying pan.
    3. 3
      Stir in green onion, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and salt. Cook until bubbly.
    4. 4
      Add shrimp to pan and cook, stirring frequently until shrimp are cooked (about 4 minutes – depending upon the size of the shrimp).
    5. 5
      Stir in parsley, lemon peel, and hot sauce.
    6. 6
      Good served with rice pilaf, green salad and French bread. If you are a real big “bread dipper”, you can always double the “sauce” portion of this recipe.

      This is the very first recipe that I've made for shrimp scampi, that actually has flavor! And lots of it. I used pre-peeled, chopped garlic. I also used Franks Hot sauce, since I did not have Tabasco. I used dried parsely and the entire lemon for the juice (probably a a bit more than a qtr cup). This is fantastic! It will become a staple in our house.

      Outstanding shrimp scampi, indeed! I cut the butter back to 4 T., omitted the green onions and upped the fresh lemon juice a bit. The shrimp was very flavorful and it came together quickly. A rich dish very suitable for company or a special occasion. We loved this! Thanks!

      This was superb. I had no lemon on hand, so used lime juice and it worked out fine. Will certainly try this one again. Thanks for sharing.
