    your favorite white whine
    butter
    I cheat and by the jarred minced garlic
    salt/pepper/oregano
    bring to a slow boil and add shrimp
    once the shrimp is cooked pour it over linguini noodles.

    I don't use an exact recipe. I just make enough sauce for the amount of shrimp/linquini I plan on making.

    mmmm sounds delicious!

    I like to do white wine, butter, fresh minced garlic, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Pour over shrimp in a baking dish and top with bread crumbs.

    I serve it with baguette or other crusty bread (because you just can't waste all that wine/buttery goodness)

    For 4:
    Melt a stick or 2 of butter
    chop 2 - 3 green onions
    lots of garlic
    fresh parsley
    S&P
    liberal squeezing of lemon juice (squeeze lemon works best here. Then serve lemon wedges on the table)

    Put in a Pyrex pan. Add in 3/4 -- 1 lb of big or jumbo raw shrimp and cover the shrimp with butter sauce.

    Put in the fridge for at least 3 hours, stirring sauce over shrimp several times.

    20 minutes before dinner cook enough rice to give everyone at least 1 cup. Cook extra because its cheap and the scampi makes great leftovers all mixed together.

    10 minutes before dinner put scampi under broiler. When shrimp turn pink on top (4 - 5 min -- but watch closely, you do not want to overcook), turn them over and cover with sauce again. The second side takes only about 3 minutes to turn pink.

    Serve scampi over rice with Caesar salad and lots of wine.
    If it weren't for horses, a man would be the best thing in the world.

    I've got a GREAT one (actually two)! Our all time favorites! Quick, simple and oh sooooo good. The shrimp come out so tender - melt in your mouth tender. YUM

    SHRIMP SCAMPI

    6 cloves garlic, slivered
    4 Tablespoons butter, melted
    2 Tablespoons lemon juice
    1 ½ teaspoons salt
    ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
    1 ¼ lbs. shrimp
    Fresh basil for garnish
    Cooked fettuccini


    1. Heat broiler. In bowl, combine 6 cloves garlic, slivered, 4 Tablespoons olive oil, 4 Tablespoons melted butter, 2 Tablespoons lemon juice, 1 ½ teaspoons salt, and ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper.

    2. Start boiling water for pasta. Cook fettuccini while shrimp is broiling.

    3. Arrange shrimp on broiler pan. Brush with half of garlic butter. Broil until well browned – about 5 minutes.

    4. Turn shrimp over; brush with remaining garlic butter. Broil until browned --- 3 – 5 minutes longer.

    5. To serve: Spoon any drippings in broiler pan over scampi. Garnish with fresh basil and serve with pasta.

    And here's another version using the same basic recipe. Equally as good and well worth the little extra work!

    SHRIMP SCAMPI WITH RED SAUCE

    6 tablespoons olive oil
    1 cup chopped onion
    ½ cup chopped sweet green pepper
    ½ cup chopped celery
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    28 oz. can Italian tomatoes, undrained
    4 Tablespoons chopped fresh basil
    6 cloves garlic, slivered
    4 Tablespoons butter, melted
    2 Tablespoons lemon juice
    1 ½ teaspoons salt
    ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
    1 ¼ lbs. shrimp
    Fresh basil for garnish
    Cooked fettuccini


    1. In heavy 2-quart saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add onion, green pepper, celery, and chopped garlic. Sauté until onion is golden – about 3 minutes.

    2. Add tomatoes with their liquid and basil. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring to break up tomatoes. Reduce heat to low; simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes.

    3. Heat broiler. In bowl, combine garlic slivers, remaining olive oil, melted butter, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.

    4. Start boiling water for pasta. Cook fettuccini while shrimp is broiling.

    5. Arrange shrimp on broiler pan. Brush with half of garlic butter. Broil until well browned – about 5 minutes.

    6. Turn shrimp over; brush with remaining garlic butter. Broil until browned --- 3 – 5 minutes longer.

    7. To serve, spoon tomato sauce into serving dish. Mound shrimp scampi in center of sauce. Spoon any drippings in broiler pan over scampi. Garnish with fresh basil and serve with pasta.



    Enjoy!

    Shrimp makes me poot.
    Thus do we growl that our big toes have, at this moment, been thrown up from below!
