No need to visit a fancy restaurant to enjoy delicious shrimp scampi! This super easy meal can be made in around 15 minutes at home! Serve this buttery garlic shrimp dish with traditional, whole wheat, or gluten-free pasta or even zucchini “zoodles”.
Adapted from Food.com
1 lb. Raw Shrimp, defrosted, peeled & deveined
3/4 cup white wine (I used Chardonnay)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup butter
3 tablespoons minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
Garnish: Lemon, fresh parsley, grated Parmesan cheese
Directions: In a large skillet over medium heat, heat butter, olive oil, garlic, and white wine until almost boiling. Stir in shrimp, red pepper flakes and parsley flakes. Cook for about 4 minutes until shrimp turns pink (take care not to overcook shrimp). Serve shrimp on top of pasta with butter sauce. If desired, garnish with lemon, Parmesan cheese, and parsley. Serves 2-3.
Time Saving Tip: Make ahead noodles a day or two before and store in a Ziploc bag with a little olive oil to prevent sticking.
My family loved this meal so much. The wine sauce was so flavorful and we thought it came out better than a restaurant! It would be easy to double this recipe for a larger dinner party as well.
