Shrimp Scampi (Recipe by Marina)
Ingredients:
2 lbs peeled shrimp (Modified:  I didn’t have that much shrimp so I added scallops, which made the dish even sweeter.)
1 package linguine
8 cloves garlic
1 cup butter
1 cup dry white wine
s & p
chopped parsley
To make:
Cook linguine according to package, peel shrimp
Cook minced garlic in butter and wine for 5-6 mins. (Yes, that is a lot of butter but the French were right about one thing, the more butter, the better it is.)
Modified: I went the extra mile and added creme freche.  About a tablespoon and a half.  Makes the sauce thicker and richer.  
Add shrimp, cook for 3-5 mins.  Until pink.
Season with s&p and chopped parsley.  Mix everything together, add linguine, serve.  
Eat with chilled white wine and really good bread.  :)  Absolutely delicious!
