  • Melt the butter with the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook the garlic in the butter and oil until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour in the wine and lemon juice; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer. Stir in the shrimp and cook until the shrimp turns pink, stirring regularly, 5 to 7 minutes. Sprinkle the parsley over the shrimp and cook another 2 minutes. Add the cornstarch to the liquid and stir until it thickens, about 1 minute more. Serve hot over the brown rice.

On a quest for a new shrimp dish once a week....this recipe was a delight! I added onion and also used cilantro. The Uncle Ben's Boil in a Bag Brown rice was the perfect amount for 1 lb of shrimp to feed 2. Double for 4. Thanks! Read More

Lacked flavor... I made this recipe according to the directions. I used pinot grigio as the white wine. Shrimp were cooked perfectly. However the meal was not flavorful enough to satisfy my husband and my tastes. We added pepper more garlic and red pepper which improved the taste. One of the previous reviews mentioned adding onion. Maybe this recipe would be better if onion was added. Read More

I made this last night with white rice. I added some grated lemon peel (after squeezing the lemon, it seems a shame to throw out the rind), chopped onion and some chopped vegies (broccoli, carrots, cauliflower) and some onion powder, along with some salt and pepper. Fabulous! Also, I didn't pay much attention to exact measurements for ingredients. It didn't seem to matter. This appears to be a very forgiving and flexible recipe. We coupled it with a Sauvignon Blanc and it was heaven! Read More

This made for a great new year's eve dinner and it was so quick and easy! It's reminiscent of a favorite dish my mom used to make with feta broiled on top but I don't think this could have been any better. Delish! Read More
