Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp Scampi

Serves Two
½ pound shrimp, peeled and cut in half

2 Tbsp. butter

3 cloves of garlic, chopped coarsely

1 cup white wine (we had an open bottle of Riesling)

However much orzo you want to cook

Juice and zested peel of one lemon

½ cup grated parmesan
Bring water to a boil for orzo.

Meanwhile melt butter in a medium skillet over low heat. When butter is bubbling, add garlic and sauté until tender.

Add orzo to boiling water. Cook 8-9 minutes.

Let wine mixture bubble until alcohol taste has dissipated.

About 4 minutes before orzo is ready, add shrimp, lemon peel and juice to pan. Stir shrimp gently and cook just until it all turns pink. Toss in most of the parmesan.

Drain orzo and plate. Pour shrimp mixture on top. Salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle with remaining parmesan.
