White Wine and Garlic Shrimp

Ahhh I love shrimping season! More than that, I love that my husband can actually go out and catch me some shrimp. Even more than that, I love that he doesn't eat shrimp so I get to keep them all to myself. The only thing I don't love about shrimp is having to clean and de-vein them before cooking. But I guess it is just the small price I have to pay.

If I'm not feeling overly ambitious for dinner, one of my favorite ways to cook up the shrimp is in an easy white wine and garlic sauce and service over a bed of pasta. You really can edit this anyway you want to fit your tastes, so it is very versatile. In this case, I had a box of orzo pasta. Once the shrimp has been cleaned and de-veined, this cooks up so quickly...the pasta takes longer then the shrimp!

Hopefully I'll be having some more delicious shrimp recipes to post here soon!

Ingredients
-Desired amount of shrimp, I had 10 medium sized shrimps
-2 cloves of garlic, minced
-1 tablespoon butter
-1/3 cup white wine (I used a Chardonnay I had)
-2 tablespoons fresh grated Parmesan cheese
- Salt & Pepper to taste

1. Peel, de-vein, and clean shrimp.
2. In a pan over medium-high heat, saute the minced garlic in the butter for 2-3 minutes or until the garlic starts turning brown. Add white wine and shrimp seasoning the shrimp with salt & pepper. Cook shrimp roughly 2-3 minutes each side or until fully cooked.
3. Serve over a bed of orzo pasta and top shrimp with Parmesan cheese.
