In a large saute pan, heat butter and oil until butter has melted. Add in garlic and saute for 1 minute. Next, add in wine, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and shrimp. Cook until shrimp turn pink and have curled into a “C” shape. Be careful not to over cook shrimp, if they curl into an “o” then they are over cooked. Should only take about 2 minutes per side to cook shrimp fully.
Serve over fettuccine pasta with shavings of parmesan cheese on top.
