2 pounds jumbo shrimp shelled and deveined
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3/4 cup butter
6 large garlic cloves
4 tablespoons minced parsley
4 cups long grain rice
salt and pepper to taste.


Toss the shrimp with lemon juice. In a small saucepan over medium heat, heat the butter until it stops frothing, about 2 minutes. Pour the top, clear, portion of the butter into another small saucepan and discard the solids. (what you have in the pan is clarified butter, which is less likely to burn than unclarified butter). Crush the garlic into the butter, stir in the parsley and simmer 1 minutes over medium heat. Spread the garlic butter over shrimp and marinate and hour, or until cooking time.

Cook the rice according to package directions and season with salt and pepper. Set a rack 4 inches below the broiler. Pre-heat the broiler. Arrange the shrimp on a baking tray and top with the marinade. Broil 4 minutes on each side. Arrange the shrimp over the hot rice, top with the garlic butter left in pan, serve at once.



Abolutely "lecker"!

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
