Garlic-Broiled Shrimp

This is a garlic-lover's delight!

Recipe Ingredients

3 pounds medium uncooked shrimp, peeled and de-veined, leaving tails

2/3 cup unsalted butter or margarine

2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

4 scallions, chopped, including tops

6 large garlic cloves, minced

1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon white wine Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce

Salt, to taste

1/4 cup dry white wine

1 tablespoon minced flat-leaf parsley

Grated Parmesan cheese

Parsley sprigs (for garnish)


Divide shrimp equally among 6 small au gratin dishes; place on baking sheets and set aside.

In a heavy saucepan, heat butter or margarine and olive oil. Add all remaining ingredients except cheese and parsley sprigs. Cook for 5 minutes over medium heat.

Position oven rack 4 inches below heat source and preheat broiler. Pour the garlic-butter sauce over shrimp; top with a generous scattering of Parmesan cheese.

Broil under preheated broiler until shrimp are coral pink and sauce is bubbly and lightly browned, about 4 minutes.

Garnish with parsley sprigs, if desired.
