Fresh juice of 2 lemons
6-8 tablespoons unsalted, softened butter
Salt, ground black pepper and hot sauce to taste
1/4 cup green finely sliced onion

if necessary. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute; add peas and return shrimp to
Stir or toss to combine ingredients, season to taste with salt and a little
pepper, then remove all to a warm platter. Pour the wine and lemon juice into
the pan and bring to a boil, whisking all the brown bits from the bottom of
the pan. Let simmer until liquid is reduced to about 2 tablespoons.
