Ingredients

  • Shrimp Scampi

  • serves 2-4 (generous portions)

  • 1

    pound raw, peeled and deveined shrimp

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/4

    teaspoon pepper

  • 2

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 3

    tablespoons butter

  • 3

    cloves of garlic, minced

  • 1

    shallot, sliced

  • 1/2

    cup dry white wine, like Chardonnay

  • 1/2

    teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 1/2

    – 3/4 pound whole wheat linguine

  • 1/3

    cup parmesan or asiago cheese

  • 2

Directions

Make sure shrimp is cleaned and completely dry, then season with salt and pepper. Boil your water for pasta and cook pasta according to directions. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, adding olive oil and 2 tablespoons butter. Add sliced shallots with a pinch of salt and saute until soft, about 3 minutes. Add in minced garlic, then immediately add in shrimp (this prevents the garlic from burning) in one layer so each side can cook. Cook for only 60 seconds, then flip shrimp and cook for 60 seconds more. Pour in white wine and let mixture simmer for about 2-3 minutes. Turn off heat and stir in the last tablespoon of butter. Add all pasta to a large bowl and pour entire shrimp and wine mixture over top. Add red pepper and cheese and toss until everything is combined. Add additional olive oil or salt and pepper to taste if desired. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with garlic bread.
