by katerina on November 30, 2009

Shrimp sauteed in garlic butter is really easy to make and guaranteed to please a crowd. When my local fisherman showed up again I knew I wanted to do another simple shrimp preparation to enhance the delicate sweet flavour of the fresh seafood.

Garlic and Wine Shrimp

If your shrimp or prawns are already cleaned and shelled you can throw this together in less than ten minutes, serve with crusty bread and a simple salad and you have a delicious easy meal.  For a variation try adding some crushed red chili flakes when you add the garlic. Delicious.

If you want to make it more of a meal, try making a fresh pasta sauce, similar to my shrimp and white wine pasta sauce with fresh tomatoes and leeks.
