4 large garlic (minced)
1 cup white wine (you may replace wine with chicken broth)
1 lb raw shrimp, peeled and de-veined
1/4 cup parmesan cheese (grated)
salt as desired
Fresh parsley to serve as garnish
Preparation: 4 servings
Preheat your oven to 350F.
Add your butter and minced garlic to a saucepan and saute on high medium heat until you start to see the garlic turning light golden and becoming fragrant.
Continue by adding your wine or chicken broth into your butter mixture and combine all using a wooden spoon. Turn off your fire and set aside for next step.
Place your raw shrimp in a oven safe baking dish and pour your buttery mixture over the shrimp. Finalize it by adding your grated parmesan cheese.
Transfer your baking dish to the oven and bake for 12-14 minutes. Once the shrimp have become smaller in size and turned color pink remove from the oven.
Serve your keto shrimp scampi with fresh parsley as garnish and eat immediately. Bon appetit!
