Black Pepper Shrimp Oreganata


1 lb shrimp, 16-20 count
2 Tbsp butter
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp dried oregano
1 Tbsp black pepper, freshly ground
1 cup white wine



Remove little “legs” from shrimp if you see any; leave shells and tails on. Rinse under cold running water. Pat dry with paper towels.

In a non-reactive large frying pan, melt butter with olive oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic, oregano and pepper, then immediately stir in shrimp. Cook, tossing, 30 seconds. Add white wine and cook 2 to 3 minutes or until shrimp turn pink. Serve immediately, accompanied by crusty bread, each diner peeling his or her shrimp shells.
