Sauteed Shrimp With Garlic and White Wine

This recipe is from RecipeZaar.I made a small change to make it easier and it came out fine.

1/4 cup butter
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/4 lbs large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup dry white wine (a nice $5 2008 Crane Lake Chardonnay)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
Add in garlic; stir/saute 2 minutes.
Add in shrimp; stir/saute 2-3 minutes or until shrimp turns pink.
Season with salt and pepper, increase heat to high and add wine and lemon juice.
Bring to a boil; boil 30 seconds.
Reduce heat, add in chopped parsley; stir until heated through.
Transfer to a serving plate; garnish with parsley sprigs and serve immediately.

Thanks to The Wine Trials 2010 for the recommendation on a good cheap white wine.
