Lemon Garlic Shrimp ScampiFeatured by Di Giovanna Estate in the International Wine Club.
1 (16 oz) package linguine, prepared according to
1 lb. large (16-20 count) shrimp, *shelled and deveined
(leave the tail on)
3 Tbs. butter
2 Tbs. olive oil
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes (add more if you like it hot!)
1/2 cup white wine
1 Tbs. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 tsp. fresh lemon zest
Freshly ground black pepper and salt to taste
2 Tbs. finely chopped parsley
Parmesan cheese for sprinkling
Extra chopped parsley for garnishing
Heat a medium-sized pan on medium-high heat. Once heated, add the butter and olive oil. Once the butter is melted and is no longer foamy, increase the heat to high and add the shrimp. Cook for one minutes, then turn shrimp over, add the garlic and red pepper flakes, and cook for another minute. Be careful not to overcook or the shrimp will be tough. Set shrimp aside on a warm plate.
Next add the white wine, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Add black pepper and salt to taste. Leave the heat on high and let the wine sauce boil for 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Add the shrimp and parsley and stir to coat with the sauce. Sprinkle each serving with some Parmesan cheese and extra chopped parsley. Serve immediately over pasta. Enjoy!
