Shrimp Scampi for Two

2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1-1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/4 teaspoon seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay®)
1 pound large shrimp, shelled and deveined
8 ounces angel hair pasta, cooked (optional)

Heat butter and oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat until foam subsides. Add garlic, lemon juice, wine, and seafood seasoning. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer 3 minutes.

Add shrimp to skillet and cook, stirring frequently, for 5 to 6 minutes. Shrimp are done when they have changed color from translucent gray to opaque white (with some pink or red accents). Another way to tell they are done: they have curled into a C shape. (An O shape is a bit overcooked.)

Remove skillet from the heat. Spoon the shrimp and sauce over the cooked angel hair pasta, if desired. Serve immediately.
