I got this recipe many years ago from a local restaurant in New Jersey. The restaurant is still there, so I know this is a good one ! When I tell people how easy it is, they are always surprised. You can serve this over rice as a main course (yellow or white rice), or just serve it in the casserole dish with plenty of delicious Portuguese bread.
- 2 lbs shrimp, raw and peeled. No tails
- 1⁄2 cup margarine (or Butter)
- 6 garlic cloves, fresh and crushed
- 1⁄2 cup dry white wine (can use white cooking wine)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 lemon (need about 1 1/2 oz. fresh Lemon juice)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- For two pounds of raw, peeled shrimp.
- Saute: One stick margarine (I use butter).
- With Six cloves crushed garlic
- Slowly, on low heat, heat the butter and garlic. Do not burn the garlic !
- Add: 1/2 Cup dry white wine (can use cooking wine).
- 1/2 Crushed Red Pepper
- 1 1/2 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice.
- Place raw, peeled shrimp in a 2 1/2 quart casserole dish and pour the sauce over the shrimp. Cover and bake 20 minutes.
- You're done ! Serve over yellow or white rice or alone with plenty of bread .
Very easy ~ and tasty! I checked the shrimp after baking 20 minutes and decided they were not pink enough, and were underdone, so I extended the baking time an extra 10 minutes. Made for My3Chefs 2012.
