Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    4 tsp olive oil
    1 1/4 pounds med shrimp, peeled and deveined (tails left on)
    6-8 garlic cloves, minced
    1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
    1/2 cup dry white wine
    1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
    1/4 cup + 1 T minced parsley
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
    4 lemon wedges (optional)

Tips

I don't use the white wine and use more chicken broth instead.


Directions

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil. Saute the shrimp until just pink, about 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook stirring constantly, about 30 seconds. With a slotted spoon transfer the shrimp to a platter and keep them warm.
In the skillet, combine the broth, wine, lemon juice, 1/4 cup of the parsley, the salt and pepper; and bring it to a boil. Boil uncovered, until the sauce is reduced by half.
Spoon the sauce over the shrimp. Serve garnished with the lemon wedges and sprinkled with the remaining tablespoon of parsley.
