This shrimp scampi is garlicky, buttery, and bright thanks to the addition of lemon juice and white wine!
Add the butter and olive oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the butter is melted, add the garlic to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly, until the garlic is fragrant and beginning to brown and the butter begins to foam.
Pour the wine into the skillet, then decrease the heat to medium-low. Simmer for 7-10 minutes, until the volume is reduced by half.
While the wine is reducing, season the shrimp with the salt and pepper and toss to coat. Then, increase the heat on the skillet to medium-high heat.
Working in batches, add the seasoned shrimp to the skillet, making sure it doesn’t overlap, and sear for 2-3 minutes per side, until the shrimp turn pink and curl in on themselves. Remove the shrimp from the skillet and set aside, then add the next batch of shrimp to the pan to cook.
Once all of the shrimp is cooked, turn off the heat, then add all of the shrimp back to the pan along with the lemon juice and parsley and toss to combine. Serve over noodles, or alongside rice, orzo, or roasted potatoes.
