GFP Day 33 - Shrimp Scampi

Jo wanted shrimp scampi, and we've got some big shrimp in the freezer. Let's do it! The ingredients...


Jumbo shrimp, lemon juice, some dry white wine, a diced shallot, and about 10 diced garlic cloves. 

Melt 2 TBSP butter in 2 TBSP olive oil over medium-high heat. 


Sauté the shallot and garlic. I threw in some red pepper flakes for a little heat, too. 


Sauté a couple minutes, then remove from the pan. 

Meantime, the pasta (we're using spaghetti tonight...can't find any linguine in the pantry!) starts to cook. 


After a little salt & pepper, the shrimp get a couple minutes on each side. 


Remove the cooked shrimp. 


2 more TBSP olive oil and 2 more TBSP butter into the pan. Then add 1/2 cup white wine and 2 TBSP lemon juice. Add the shallots & garlic back in and cook for a couple minutes. 


Add the drained pasta and the shrimp. Mix it up to coat the pasta. 


A tasty bowl of shrimp scampi with some Parmesan. Great dinner!
