Tempt My Tummy Tuesday!

One of SH's favorite dishes is a staple in our house. He eats on the road so much that I really try to make something he especially loves when he is home. Wifely duty and all.... Here it is:

Shrimp Scampi & Rice

1 lb. large, shelled, deveined shrimp
1/2 stick butter
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cloves finely chopped garlic (more if you really like garlic--we do!)

Saute the butter and garlic in 2 Tbs. of the butter, until slightly golden brown. Add shrimp. Saute shrimp until pink-watch it closely. It only takes a couple of minutes. Removed shrimp from pan. Add remaining butter and chicken broth. If liquid is too thin, I usually mix up a couple of teaspoons of cornstarch in a bit of broth and add to the liquid. It'll thicken up quickly. Toss the shrimp back in and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes. Not much longer or it will make the shrimp too rubbery. Serve hot over steamed rice. We'll use whatever rice we have on hand but SH especially loves this over yellow rice. Side dish ideas include steamed broccoli, steamed snow peas or sauteed green beans. The kids even love shrimp and honestly, though this should make enough for 3-4 servings, many times I'll double it and we still eat it all! Enjoy!!
