I came up with this shrimp scampi recipe by trying different things. Over time, it eventually evolved into this. This is a butter-and-garlic lover's delight, and my favorite way to make shrimp. Enjoy.

Hey, I joined this site just to review this wonderful recipe! Over the years, I've tried dozens of recipes in the vain attempt to find one which was even close to that "professional" recipe everyone tries to copy. [you know the one] I've found several which were good, and a few which were AS good as that "professional" recipe. But this is the first time I've ever seen one which surpasses it. I've now adapted it to fit My own tastes, but this was the best base recipe I've ever found. Adaptations: 1 lb raw shrimp, peeled and deveined, 1/2 cup dry white wine, 1/4 cup light olive oil, 1/2 cup butter; 2 tablespoons margarine; 3 tablespoons minced garlic ;1/4 teaspoon paprika; 1/2 tablespoon parsley flakes; 1/8 teaspoon white pepper; 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne/red pepper; 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice; pinch of celery seed; grated parmesan cheese, to top Heat wine, olive oil, butter, margarine, and garlic in a large skillet on medium heat until it just starts to boil. Then add all the other spices, lemon juice, and parsley flakes; stir in and immediately add shrimp. Cook for about 4 or 5 minutes or until shrimp turns pink. Don't overcook!!!! Spoon shrimp into toasting/baking dish with some of the cooking sauce and top liberally with parmesan cheese. Preheat at "toast" or broil temperature for 5 minutes and Broil/toast for 2 minutes ONLY!!!
