Shrimp Scampi Recipe

We were ready for something on the light side so I decided on this Shrimp Scampi Recipe.  This is a simple recipe that doesn’t have a lot of ingredients, but don’t let that fool you, it is delicious. The lemon juice goes naturally with the seafood enhancing the flavor of the shrimp. My Family loved this Shrimp Scampi Recipe and I am sure I will be preparing it again in the near future. Enjoy

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt plus 1½ teaspoons
  • Vegetable oil
  • ¾ pound linguine
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2½ tablespoons good olive oil
  • 1½ tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ⅓ cup chopped fresh parsley leaves

Instructions
  1. Drizzle some oil in a large pot of boiling salted water, add 1 tablespoon of salt and the linguine, and cook for 7 to 10 minutes, or according to the directions on the package.
  2. In another large (12-inch), heavy-bottomed pan, melt the butter and olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and mushrooms. Saute for 1 minute. Be careful, the garlic burns easily!
  3. Add the shrimp, 1½ teaspoons of salt, and the pepper and saute until the shrimp have just turned pink, about 5 minutes, stirring often.
  4. Remove from the heat; add the parsley, lemon zest, lemon juice, lemon slices, and red pepper flakes and mix thoroughly.
  5. When the pasta is done, drain the cooked linguine and then put it back in the pot. Immediately add the shrimp and sauce and mix well.
  6. Serve and enjoy.

Shrimp Marinara and Linguini Recipe

With Lent being here and Easter right around the corner this time of year every Friday we have fish or seafood. This Shrimp Marinara Recipe has a little bit of heat and it is delicious. You could use your choice of raw or cooked shrimp; I used cooked shrimp in this recipe. If you are looking for a change on Fridays this will do it, and your Family or Guests will love it. If you don’t want this on the hot side, just cut down on the red pepper or eliminate it. Garnish with parmesan cheese and serve with garlic bread. Enjoy
