Shrimp Scampi

Every now and then, the Priest leaders in our ward have a cooking night. They bring a lot of different kinds of food and let the boys imaginations run wild. They let them make anything they can think of using the ingredients they have on hand. They are supposedly trying to teach them how to get by on their missions. I actually like the idea. I think it is really good for the boys. But, how many missionaries do you know that just happen to have shrimp in their refrigerators? Hmmmm.
Anyway, this is what Cuyler and his group came up with one night. You can really add any kind of herbs that you want. It is very yummy!

Shrimp Scampi

2 lbs uncooked shrimp (shelled and deveined)
1/2 cup butter
3 cloves garlic (minced)
1 onion (chopped)
8 oz. sliced mushrooms.
dash of lemon juice

Melt the butter in a frying pan. Saute the garlic, onion and mushrooms in the butter until onions are transparent. Add shrimp. Cook just until shrimp is pink. Don't over cook the shrimp or it will be tough. Add lemon juice.
