Creole Shrimp Scampi



inspired by: cajundelights.blogspot.com/2011/11/spicy-creole-shrimp-scampi
Makes 3 or 4 servings

1 lb. large shrimp, peeled and deveined
4 TBSP butter, sliced 
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup dry white wine
4 garlic cloves, minced 
Juice of 1/2 lemon [1 TBSP]
1/2 cup green onions, sliced 
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped [1 TBSP dried]
1.5 tsp. Cajun seasoning  [they include plenty of salt]
1 can diced tomatoes, drained
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese  [I use more like 1 full cup]
1/2 lb  pasta of choice- cooked according to package directions.

Season shrimp with Cajun seasoning. In large skillet on medium heat, add olive oil, butter  and wine, bring to simmer, add garlic. Saute the garlic for 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, lemon juice, parsley, green onion and cook on medium heat for 6-8 minutes, stirring frequently. Add in shrimp, and toss until shrimp turn pink [about 3 or 4 minutes.] 
Top everything with Parmesan cheese, then simmer until cheese melts. Covering during the final stage helps cheese melt, but isn't necessary.
Serve over cooked pasta.
Sooo good!
