"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Steve George


1 lb. large peeled shrimp
5 garlic cloves
2 Tbsps. finely chopped parsley
1 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsps. olive oil
1/2 cup white wine
Black pepper
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Pasta or bread

1. Add the pasta to the boiling water and the butter and olive oil to the sauté pan.

2. Sauté the garlic for a minute or so (do not let it burn).

3. Add the white wine and a little salt and let it boil furiously for 2 to 3 minutes, then add the shrimp.

4. Let the shrimp jump in the pan over high heat for 2 to 3 minutes, then turn them and add the parsley and the black pepper.

5. Wait one minute and then mix well and turn off the heat.

6. The pasta should be done by now, so drain it.

7. Add the lemon juice to the scampi, then mix it with the pasta and serve at once.

8. If you're going the bread route, just pour the scampi in a bowl and have at it!
