Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp Scampi

My kids arent the biggest on seafood and neither am I…..until you introduce shrimp. Then you merry that with silky butter, fragrant garlic & fresh herbs….oh man. Heaven on a plate in under 30 minutes! Shrimp Scampi is a quick and delicious meal the whole family will love!!!

Omg its just sooooo delicious!!

Ingredients

  • 10 large shrimp (I use pre deveined frozen large shrimp from Walmart)
  • 1/2 box of linguine
  • 1/4 red onion diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3-4 tbsp butter 
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 1/2 tsp of McCormick Lemon & Pepper Seasoning
  • 1 tsp fresh rosemary chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme chopped
  • 1 lemon

Directions

First and foremost, get a large pot of water to a roiling boil and salt it well. Drop the pasta, cook according to package directions and rinse well in a colander.

Make sure you rinse the shrimp well and devein if necessary. I use frozen shrimp that is already deveined so I am ready to GO.

Frozen shrimp thawing out in water ready for some BUTTER!!!

Chop the red onion, garlic, rosemary and thyme while getting a saute pan over medium heat with 2 tbsp oil.

Herbs, red onion and garlic all chopped and ready to go

Cook the red onion for about a minute until it is translucent and then drop the garlic in for about 30 seconds until fragrant.

Garlic and red onion sauteed in oil smells divine!

Add in 3 tbsp of butter chopped into cubes so it will melt down quickly while stirring.

Butter makes this dish rich and silky….yum!

Once the butter is all melted, add your shrimp in and sprinkle the seasonings all over.

Seasoned and almost ready to turn!

Turn the shrimp after about a minute or until the underneath of the shrimp is pink. Once the shrimp has poached in the butter for about 2 minutes, add in the chopped rosemary, thyme and pasta. Garnish with parsley, lemon slices and juice and lastly….dig in and enjoy!

Shrimp Scampi and allll its glory!
