Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp Scampi is my chosen dish for my 365 easy recipes today. As you may have noticed, I’ve been missing in action. I have been on a learning curve with my new position, and we are experiencing internet issues which doesn’t help AT ALL! Hopefully all will be resolved in that area tomorrow.

On with the recipe!

Shrimp Scampi

3 to 4 garlic gloves, minced

1/4 cup butter, cubed

1/4 cup olive oil

1 uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon pepper


1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup dry bread crumbs

1/4 cup minced fresh parsley

Hot cooked angel hair pasta

In a 10-in. oven[proof skillet, sauté garlic in butter and olive until tender. Stir in the shrimp, lemon juice, pepper and oregano; cook and stir for 2-3 minutes or until shrimp turns pink.

Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs and parsley. Broil 6 in. from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until topping is golden brown. Serve over pasta.

Here are the changes I made. I always make changes, it seems. Even when I don’t plan on it!

I forgot to buy garlic gloves so I used garlic powder. I think the gloves would have been way better, just saying. I also didn’t have any lemon juice but I had lime so I used it instead. Again, I think it may have altered the taste considerably but it was pretty good anyway. I think I might want to try it the correct way next time. 🙂 I added a salad and we were good to go!
