Recipe Share - Shrimp Scampi

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves garlic, pressed
1 pound large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 tomato, diced
1/4 cup white wine (or white grape juice w/ a splash of vinegar)
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped

In a skillet, heat butter and olive oil together over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, saute for 1 minute, then add the shrimp and tomato. Saute for 1 minute, add wine, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste. The sauce will reduce and shrimp will turn pink - it happens very quickly. Do not overcook the shrimp or they'll be rubbery. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.

Serving Suggestion: Serve over angel hair pasta and sprinkle some grated romano cheese over top.
