- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 pound medium shrimp shelled and deveined
- ⅓ cup white wine
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt or to taste
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add the shrimp and cook for 2 minutes or until they begin to turn pink and are no longer transparent.
Add the wine, Italian seasoning and salt. Cook until the wine has reduced and the shrimp are cooked through (just a few minutes). Do not over cook.
Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice.
Use a large skillet. Use a large enough skillet that the shrimp will be in a single layer. This makes it easier to know when they are done especially because they cook so quickly.
Do not overcook the shrimp. Shrimp cook in just a few minutes. For the best flavor and texture do not overcook them.
Use tongs. It's easier to turn the shrimp over individually with tongs than with a spatula. This will ensure the shrimp cooks evenly.
