Cooking Basics..Everything you need to know about cooking

{June 23, 2010}   Shrimp Scampi!

Another scampi recipe! This is actually pretty good! My friend and I both loveddd it! It’s ultra-delish and tasted great! It doesn’t use loads of butter, which is always good! You need to marinade the shrimp overnight, so make this ahead of time! If you don’t have enough time to marinade overnight, marinade it for about 1 1/2 hours before making.

You Will Need:
– 1/2 pound shrimp (shells off)

– 4 tablespoons butter, cut into 8 small cubes

– 2 tablespoons fresh chopped basil (optional)

– 3 tablespoons garlic salt (divided)

– 2 cloves garlic

– 3  1/2 tablespoons old bay

– 2 tablespoons olive oil

– salty chicken broth (Bring 1 cup of water to a boil, now add one chicken bouillon cube. DO THIS INSTEAD OF CHICKEN BROTH IN A CAN! It’s saltier, and tastes better)

– 1 tablespoon black pepper

– 2 tablespoons lemon juice

– 1 tsp red pepper flakes

– 1 lb linguine (cooked)

– 2 tablespoons Italian seasoned bread crumbs


1. In a bowl, mix together cubed butter, old bay, basil, black pepper, 1 1/2 tablespoons garlic salt, shrimp, and lemon juice. Cover and let marinade overnight (or at least 1 1/2 hours).

2. Sautee garlic in olive oil and add 1 1/2 tablespoons garlic salt as well as red pepper flakes. Now add in shrimp/butter mixture and let cook for about 4-5 minutes, or until shrimp is well cooked. Now add in enough salty chicken broth to make a sauce. Stir in bread crumbs.

3. Toss in warm pasta until it is coated in the sauce.

4. Bon appetit!
