April 29, 2021
Happy National Shrimp Scampi Day! Today’s all about celebrating one of America’s favorite shrimp dishes: Shrimp Scampi. After all, few can resist that delicious mix of wild-caught American shrimp, butter, garlic, lemon, white wine and more served perfectly over a bed of angel hair pasta. Celebrate this year with our own take on this classic dish!
1 1/2 pounds large shrimp (about 16 to 24)
1/3 cup clarified butter
4 tablespoons minced garlic
6 green onions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup extra dry white wine
2 tablespoons lemon juice, fresh if possible
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
salt and pepper, to taste
Rinse shrimp and set aside. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook garlic 1 or 2 minutes or until softened but not browned. Add shrimp, green onions, wine, and lemon juice; cook until shrimp are pink and firm, about 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Do not overcook. Add chopped parsley and salt and pepper before serving. Garnish with lemon slices and parsley sprigs if desired.
Serves four as a main dish or 8 as a first course.
Cook Time: 1 hour
