Shrimp Scampi

We used smaller frozen cooked shrimp (it was what we already had on hand) and just heated them up in the skillet.

1 ½ lbs large shrimp (16-24)
1/3 cup clarified butter
4 Tbsp minced garlic
6 green onions, thinly sliced
¼ cup dry white wine
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
salt and pepper to taste

Rinse shrimp and set aside. Heat butter in large skillet over medium heat. Cook garlic 1-2 minutes until softened but not browned. Add shrimp, green onions, wine, and lemon juice; cook until shrimp are pink and firm, about 1-2 minutes on each side. Do not overcook. Add chopped parsley and salt and pepper before serving. Garnish with lemon slices and parsley sprigs if desired. Makes 8 servings. (We got about 3-4 servings – since when is 2-3 shrimp a serving??)
