Cooking Basics..Everything you need to know about cooking

Shrimp Scampi

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!
