Shrimp Festival

My brother is graduating high school this weekend so I’m at my parents house helping my mom get ready for the big part on Saturday!

My mom knows how much I like shrimp–it has been one of my favorite foods for as long as I can remember. My mom has also been making this meal for as long as I can remember (maybe that’s why I like shrimp so much..). The mouth watering aroma of this shrimp is incredible–it is definitely a meal to make if you are expecting company!

  • 1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 1/4 pound raw medium shrimp, shelled, deveined, with tails on
  • 1 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 4 lemon slices (for garnish)
  1. In a medium-size skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Add shrimp and cook, stirring constantly, just until pink (about 2 minutes).
  2. Add minced garlic and cook, continuing to stir, for 30 seconds.
  3. Reduce heat to low.
  4. Using a slotted spoon, remove shrimp from skillet and place on a covered platter to keep hot.
  5. Add white wine, lemon juice, chicken broth, minced parsley, pepper and salt to skillet. Bring to a boil and cook until sauced is reduced by half.
  6. Spoon sauce over shrimp and garnish with lemon slices.
