Shrimp Scampi with Artichokes

Well, I am trying to get Dave to eat a bit better so I started looking for recipes that are on the lighter fare when it comes to fat and sodium. I found this recipe and tried it. It was very yummy. Hope you all enjoy.

2 tbsp olive oil

5 large cloves garlic, minced

2 medium shallots, thinly sliced

1 1/4 pounds large shrimp (about 20), peeled and deveined

1 (14-ounce) can artichoke hearts, rinsed, drained, and quartered

1/3 cup dry white wine

2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

2 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, plus more for garnish

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and shallots and cook, stirring until softened but not browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Add shrimp, artichoke hearts, wine, and lemon juice and cook until the shrimp are cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the parsley, salt and pepper. Serve over brown rice.
