Shrimp Scampi Recipe

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes

If you are using frozen shrimp, defrost them quickly and safely by putting the shrimp in a large bowl of ice water.

* Whether you prepare the shrimp shell on or off is really up to you. Cooking the shrimp with the shells still on will impart more flavor, but they are much messier to eat. Shelling the shrimp before cooking them will make the shrimp a lot easier to eat and you can save the shells for shellfish stock if you want.


1 pound large (16-20 count) shrimp, shelled* and de-veined, tail-on for presentation if you want
2 tablespoons olive oil
2-3 tablespoons butter
3-4 garlic cloves, slivered, or 1 Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 to 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup white wine
2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 Tbsp lemon juice
