Eddie's Super Shrimp Scampi

On March 22, 1993 Intel shipped its first Pentium chips, World Water Day was established and my father perfected his recipe for Shrimp Scampi.

This dish is easy and delicious and is as good, if not better, than anything you would get in a restaurant.

3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp margarine
1 tbsp chopped green onion
2 tbsp olive oil
6 cloves pressed garlic
4 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
4 tsp white wine
1 tsp oregano
1 lb peeled, deveined shrimp
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp water
2 tbsp chopped parsley
1/2 lb cooked linguine

Melt the margarine and butter in a skillet. Add the next 8 ingredients and cook until bubbly.

Add the shrimp and cook for 5-6 minutes, turning halfway through.

Dissolve the cornstarch in the tsp of water and add to pan, giving it a good stir.

Turn off the heat and add the parsley and linguine.

Toss to coat.

Alternatively, this could be served over rice.

Definitely, it should be enjoyed with a nice glass of white wine.
