Drain and set aside
Melt 1/2 of the butter and oil in a large skillet on a medium heat.
Add shallot, garlic, salt, pepper and cook until translucent, 2 to 3 minutes, then remove and set aside.
Add the shrimp to the skillet once the shallots are translucent and cooked for 2 or 3 minutes until they turn pink. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
Pour wine and lemon juice into the skillet and bring to the boil to loosen up the drippings.
