Shrimp Scampi




My spouse spent last Sunday successfully shrimping. Unsurprisingly, the shrimp made the scampi superb!


1 lb shrimp, de-headed but shells kept on
3 T olive oil
1/2 t dried pepper flakes
1/2 c dry white wine
1 t salt
4 T unsalted butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 package linguini
1/2 c chopped parsley


First, get a pot of boiling water ready. Have all your ingredients chopped and ready, and then start cooking the pasta. While it’s cooking, heat a large skillet to medium high heat. Add the olive oil. Add the garlic and pepper flakes, and saute for about one minute. Add butter. Then add shrimp. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until all the shrimp are pink. Take off heat. When the pasta is cooked, drain all pasta water except one cup. Add the shrimp and butter liquid to the pasta (add the pasta water if it’s still a little “dry”, or drizzle with olive oil), and add parsley. Enjoy!
