Shrimp Scampi

Not a great pic, but, this will do to get the idea! The scampi tastes great with crostini, like they serve it at "Bertucci's", although it is also served with linguine and marinara sauce at most Italian places.

Shrimp - 1 lbs
garlic - 4 cloves,crushed
olive oil - 1 tbsp
butter - 2 tbsp
dry white wine - 1/2 cup
lemon juice - 1 tbsp
Parsley for garnishing
salt & pepper

Heat olive oil in a skillet, add butter and shrimp. When the shrimp has turned pink, add salt and garlic; saute for 2 mins. Remove shrimp and set aside.
In the same pan add wine and lemon juice and bring it to boil. Add shrimp, parsley and season with pepper and a dash of olive oil.
Serve immediately with crostini's.
