Garlic Wine Shrimp

This is a very quick dish when the shrimp are purchased already peeled and cleaned. It is based on a recipe in “Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant.” We serve it with crusty bread to soak up the delicious wine sauce.

We begin by thawing the shrimp in a colander under cold running water according to the package directions. When the shrimp are defrosted and draining, we start heating the olive oil and garlic in a frying pan over medium-low heat. When the garlic is fragrant, we raise the heat to medium and add the shrimp. We cook, turning the shrimp after 2 minutes. After another minute or so, we add the wine and parsley and cook until the shrimp are done.

The shrimp only take about 5 minutes total to cook. We remove the shrimp to a serving bowl, leaving the wine sauce in the pan. We boil the sauce for a minute or so, add the juice from half a lemon and some black pepper and pour the sauce over the shrimp. We serve with wedges of lemon.
