Happy money making Monday! Today is April 29th only one more day till the first of the month. Today the world acknowledges Shrimp Scampi, a delicious dish of shrimp cooked with butter, garlic, lemon juice and white wine. Thanks to national day calendar, you have a recipe below that you can try at home!

Shrimp Scampi Recipe

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 4

If you are using frozen raw shrimp, defrost them quickly and safely by putting the shrimp in a large bowl of lightly salted ice water (1 1/2 teaspoons of salt for every quart of water).

We cook the shrimp scampi in butter and olive oil so we can cook at a relatively high heat without burning the butter but still impart the butter flavor.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pound large (16-20 count) raw shrimp, shelled* and de-veined, (if you want, keep the tail on for an attractive presentation)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2-3 Tbsp butter
  • Salt
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, slivered, or 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (less or more to taste)
  • 1/2 cup white wine (I recommend a dry white wine such as a Sauvignon Blanc)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
