Finely chop half of each bunch of the herbs.

Peel the shrimps and remove the heads. Wash them and dry with a tea-towel.

Fry the garlic gently in the oil until golden brown, then remove it. Add the shrimps to the oil and brown them for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, stir in the chopped herbs and moisten with the wine. Finish cooking for a few minutes and serve hot, garnished with the remaining fresh herbs.
