  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 pound medium shrimp shelled and deveined
  • 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.


Pro Tips
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.
