Lemon Pepper Shrimp Scampi

Lemon Pepper Shrimp Scampi (Adapted from Cooking Light)

1 cup dry orzo
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
3 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
1 1/2 pounds peeled and deveined jumbo shrimp
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
fresh ground black pepper

In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook according to package directions. Drain and place orzo in a medium bowl. Stir in parsley and 1 tablespoon butter - season with salt and cover to keep warm.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt remaining 1 1/2 tablespoon butter over medium-high. Season shrimp with salt and add into the skillet (if your skillet is small, do this in two batches) - sauté until almost cooked through, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Scoop out shrimp and place onto a plate.

Add remaining 1 tablespoon butter into the pan. Add garlic to pan and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in shrimp, juice and pepper - cook until the shrimp are just done, about 1 additional minute.

Makes about 4 servings.
