                            Garlic and Chive Shrimp Scampi

1/2     Cup unsalted butter
2        Pounds extra large shrimp, shelled, deveined, and rinsed
10       Cloves garlic, crushed and finely minced
1/3     Cup chopped parsley
2        Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

Fill a large saucepan with enough water to cook the linguini. Turn
the stove to high, and heat the water to boiling. Add about
tablespoons salt, and return to boil. Add the linguini and cook
according to package directions.

While the pasta is cooking, heat the butter in a saucepan over
medium heat until butter stops foaming. Add the garlic and
sautè until soft, about 2 minutes. Add the shrimp and sautè
until the shrimp is pink and tender, about 4 to 5 minutes.
Add the parsley, salt,  and lemon juice, and stir. Remove from
heat. Strain the pasta and place in a large, shallow dish.
Pour 1/2 of the shrimp sautè over the pasta and toss.
Pour remaining shrimp mixture over pasta and sprinkle
with chive blossom or chopped chive. Enjoy!
