another fresh seafood idea

In a medium skillet, melt butter. Add garlic and onions and sauté until tender. Add shrimp and sauté for about 5 minutes, or until pink. Drizzle lemon juice and white wine over shrimp. Simmer for about 2 minutes to allow the sauce to mellow. Add parsley, simmer 2 minutes longer.

Three species of penaeid shrimp — white, pink, and brown — are caught in North Carolina and make up most of the shrimp harvested in nearby states as well. Juveniles use estuaries and tidal creeks as their nursery habitat in late spring and early summer. Wild-caught N.C. shrimp are a smart seafood choice, as harvests are managed under state and federal regulations. Learn more about offshore versus inshore catches in Hook, Line & Science.
