One of my favorite dishes of all time is Shrimp Scampi. I had originally discovered it at UNO’s and from there have tried many types. Since I have started in the cooking interest, my first really nice dish I made was Shrimp Scampi. It turned out quite good and did not take that much time.
Shrimp Scampi (Serves 4)
- 1 lbs large shrimp (16-20 count)
- 1/2 package of pasta (I like using Vermicelli or Fettuccine, and you can also add more pasta)
- 2 Tbsp of butter or margarine
- 2 Tbsp of olive oil
- 1 Tbsp of minced garlic or 3-4 garlic cloves (I like to put 3 or 4 Tbsp of minced garlic but it should be to taste)
- 1 median tomato
- 1/2 cup white wine
- 2 Tbsp of chopped parsley
- 1 Tbsp of lemon juice
- In a large skillet or pot over a median heat, melt the butter with the olive oil. Once heated add the garlic and cook for a minute. If it is fresh garlic cloves, again cook for a minute or until you begin to see some of the garlic to brown at the edges.
- Add the shrimp. Then the wine. Stir frequently to coat the shrimp in the sauce. Increase the heat and let the wine boil for 2 to 3 minutes. Add tomatoes, cut already, into the pan.
- When the shrimp are pink and the way you prefer them, take the pan off the heat and add the parsley, lemon juice, and black pepper and salt.
It is a very easy recipe and it does not take that much time. You can add more things in. You do not have to have tomatoes but I just prefer to add some more things into the dish. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did.
