Shrimp Scampi

Hi All!  This week I thought I talk about some recipes that would be great for your special Valentine's Day celebration but really, any day is special enough to cook a great meal!  
This Shrimp Scampi is yummy and would be perfect with a steak for a "Surf and Turf!"

· ¼ cup olive oil
· ¼ butter, melted
· ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
· 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
· 1 tablespoon minced garlic
· Black Pepper, to taste
· Crushed red pepper, to taste (optional)
· 1 ½ pounds, medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

1. In a large glass bowl, stir together the olive oil, butter, lemon juice, parsley, garlic, black pepper and crushed red pepper (if using). Add shrimp and toss to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
2. Heat grill pan to medium-high heat. Discard marinade.
3. Grill for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until opaque.
Great served over linguine noodles.

Here's a photo of my Shrimp Scampi.  I decided at the last minute to make some cheese grits and sprinkle with bacon bits.  Because well... grits and bacon.
