10 Minute Shrimp in Garlic Butter Sauce

1 lb. medium shrimp, uncooked, peeled and deveined
1 stick margarine or 1/2 C. butter
3 T. parsley
4 cloves garlic, crushed
salt and white pepper (if desired)

Heat 2 T. margarine in a large skillet over medium high heat. Once melted, add shrimp, salt and pepper (if desired) and cook for 4-6 minutes, or until shrimp is fully cooked.

Meanwhile, in a small pan, melt remaining butter/margarine and add garlic. Cook over medium-low heat while shrimp is cooking. Cook 5-7 minutes, or til garlic is tender and has fully flavored the butter.

Using a slotted spoon, remove cooked shrimp from pan, top with garlic butter, and garnish with parsley.
