Ingredients

  • Rice
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 shallot, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 pound raw shrimp
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • ¼ cup chicken stock
  • 3 Tbsp. white wine
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • Toppings: chopped fresh parsley and (optional) freshly-grated parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Cook rice to package instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, heat butter in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add shallot and garlic and saute for 2 minutes, or until fragrant, stirring occasionally. Add shrimp and immediately season, salt and pepper. Continue sauteing the shrimp with the garlic for about 3-4 minutes, or until pink on both sides and no longer opaque.
  3. Add in the chicken stock, wine and lemon juice, and stir to combine. Let the mixture continue cooking for an additional minute to boil down, then remove from heat.
  4. Drain the rice, and serve topped with the shrimp scampi. Sprinkle with desired toppings.

Enjoy!
