Shrimp Scampi




1 lb. shrimp
3/4 cup unsalted butter
Garlic, very finely chopped, to taste
Fresh lemon juice, to taste
Breadcrumbs, toasted


Clean shrimp. Melt butter in a large frying pan then add the garlic. Saute until the garlic is soft but do not brown it. Add the shrimp and saute until they turn pink. Add a small amount of lemon juice (about 2 Tbsp.) and stir. You can add a sprinkle of toasted bread crumbs over the shrimp after they are plated if you like.
