I love shrimp. I always have a bag of it in my freezer. I don't usually buy shrimp in the seafood case in grocery stores because once I got some bad shrimp. It must have been previously frozen, and may have been sitting in there a little too long. Here's the recipe for shrimp scampi that I found on the back of the Kroger white shrimp (26 - 30 count) bag.
1 lb. shrimp, thawed, shelled, & deveined
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 lemon zest
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup white cooking wine
2 tsp parsley
Salt & Pepper to taste
Heat a large skillet on medium. Melt butter in the skillet. Add shrimp so they lay flat in the pan. Salt and pepper to taste. Cook the shrimp for 1 minute, add garlic, and cook 1 additional minute. Turn shrimp over and cook for additional 2 - 3 additional minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Pour cooking wine and lemon juice into the skillet. Bring to a boil until thickened. Stir the zest and parsley into the sauce. Pour the sauce over the shrimp, toss and serve.
(I also added spinach in the end. In just a minute or so it wilted, and it was ready.)
For the wine, I used Sauvignon Blanc, because it's what I usually enjoy drinking. They say to use what you like. If you don't usually drink wine, you can buy a 4 pack of individuals at the store. That way you haven't opened up a bottle that needs to be used in the next few days. Or you can always substitute apple juice or chicken stock.
