for special occasions.

- 2 pounds (31 to 35 count) Louisiana shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 2 or more tablespoons dry white wine
- 1 teaspoon dill weed
- Juice of one lemon
- 1/2 teaspoon white pepper

- In a large skillet, sauté the garlic and all but 2 tablespoons of the green onions
in melted butter until tender.
- Reduce the heat to medium and add the shrimp, white wine, and dill.
- Cook until the shrimp begin to turn light pink, then add the lemon juice
and the white pepper.
