Shrimp Scampi

I wasn't ever really a fan of shrimp, but being married to D i guess I've grown to like it more.

6 T butter
1/4 C. Olive Oil
2 T. chopped parsley
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp. salt
2 T. lemon juice
1 lb. shrimp- 1 g raw
1 lb. Fettucini

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Melt the butter and add olive oil, parsley, garlic, salt and lemon juice. mix well.

Shell and De-vein shrimp leaving tails attached. (or get rid of tails.) split down inside lengthwise... be careful not to cut through. Spread open to simulate butterflies.

Place in shallow baking pan, tail end up. Pour sauce over all.

Bake for 5 minutes. Place under broiler for 5 more minutes to brown.

Cook fettucini while shrimp are cooking. Mix shrimp and fettucini and serve.
