  • In a large straight-sided skillet, heat remaining 1/4 cup oil over medium-high heat. Add sliced garlic, and cook, stirring occasionally, until just beginning to turn golden brown. Add shrimp, and remaining 1/2 cup wine. Cook, stirring, until almost cooked through. Add strained cooking liquid, and cook until shrimp are just firm. Stir in butter and parsley.

This was a VERY good recipe! It wasn't difficult, it didn't take long, and it certainly didn't last long! (I used salted butter, and it didn't need a single dash more. Perfecto!)
