Monday February 6, 2017 - Shrimp Scampi With Linguine - You're Gonna
Love It!! - A simple recipe great for a Valentine's Day dinner
Fully cooked shrimp, shelled and deveined (raw uncooked shrimp will provide a more
tender result but add a level of complexity in cooking the shrimp properly)
Linguine (A whole wheat
noodle will provide a better dish overall)
Old Bay Seasoning
Optional ingredients to enhance flavor and add
textures - Cooked broccoli or spinach
1. Cook the linguine
according to the directions on the package. Drain and set aside until later.
2. In a large skillet on
medium heat, saute the minced garlic in butter and olive oil. Be careful not to let the garlic get too brown.
3. Just when the garlic is on the verge of browning, add the shrimp to the skillet. Be sure to pat the shrimp dry with
a paper towel before putting them in the skillet to eliminate any water from splattering or cooling down the skillet.
Heat the shrimp for a few minutes on each side. You may want to add some more butter and olive oil to provide more sauce
for the final dish.
5. Once the shrimp are heated, sprinkle a generous amount of Old Bay seasoning on the shrimp
Add the linguine noodles that were set aside to the skillet and toss the noodles throughout.
7. For added
flavor or texture, you can add cooked broccoli or spinach at this point.
8. Once all the ingredients are well mixed
together slide on a plate and serve.
