Okay, this is a kind of scampi.
In about a tablespoon of olive oil, cook about 15 shrimp for a couple minutes, flip them over & cook the other side, then take them out with a slotted spoon & set them aside.
In the pan, which you've now flavored, throw three minced garlic cloves and two thinly sliced shallots or part of a thinly sliced red onion. (At this point, I will toss in rinsed canned artichokes; you don't have to.)
In that immediately goes a sprinkle of pepper, chopped parsley (you can use dry, but it won't affect the flavor, just make it prettier), the juice from one lemon, and one-third cup of white wine. Cook this for a short time, then, if you want, and you're up for it, throw in maybe one tablespoon of real butter. Finally pile on the shrimp. Stir them through. You shouldn't cook them for long.
I'd serve this over a tiny portion of whole-wheat linguini or on top of cannellini beans.
