Fresh lemon juice 1 1/2 Tablespoon
Salt 1/4 Teaspoon
Garlic cloves 2 , minced
Butter 1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs) , melted
Peeled deveined shrimp 3/4 Pound ((Uncooked))
Minced fresh parsley 2 Tablespoon
Hot sauce 1/4 Teaspoon
Angel hair pasta 8 Ounce , cooked and hot ((I Made About 8 Oz., Which Was Twice As Much Pasta As This Recipe Needed. You Can Use Your Own Judgment About The Amount Of Pasta. The Shrimp Will Make Roughly 2 Servings.))
Lemon slices 4 ((For Garnish))
Fresh parsley sprigs 1 ((For Garnish))

Directions

In a large skillet, combine 1 ½ to 2 tablespoons sliced green onion, ¾ to 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind, 1 ½ tablespoons fresh lemon juice, ¼ teaspoon salt, 2 cloves minced garlic, and 1/3 cup melted butter. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is hot and bubbly. Reduce the heat to medium and add ¾ pound peeled and deveined shrimp. Cook, stirring constantly, 5 minutes, or until shrimp turns pink. Add 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley and ¼ teaspoon hot sauce. Toss gently. Serve over 4 to 8 oz. hot, cooked angel hair pasta. Garnish with lemon slices and fresh sprigs of parsley. Enjoy!!! --Betty
