New Year's Eve Shrimp Recipe


  • 1/2 cup salted butter (do not substitute margarine)
  • 4 cloves finely minced garlic
  • 1 bunch green onions, washed and chopped
  • 2 lbs. (31 to 35 count) Louisiana shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 or more Tbsp. dry white wine
  • 1 tsp. dill weed
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 tsp. white pepper
  • Salt, to taste
  • Cooked angel hair pasta for 6 to 8


  1. In a large skillet, sauté the garlic and all but 2 tbsp. of the green onions in melted butter until tender.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium and add the shrimp, white wine, and dill.
  3. Cook until the shrimp begin to turn light pink, then add the lemon juice and the white pepper.
  4. Check and adjust the salt and pepper of the dish and continue cooking until the shrimp reach your level of desired doneness. Ideally the shrimp should be cooked only until they are pink and tender.
