Shrimp Scampi Tyler Style


My husband has been asking for Shrimp Scampi for the last week. I found a recipe for Shrimp Scampi from Tyler Florence. It looked easy and I had all the ingredients on hand. This took minutes to make and tasted great for a quick dinner. I used whole wheat pasta noodles from Trader Joe's. I also grated a little Parmesan on top and served with a green salad.

Shrimp Scampi with Linguine
Recipe courtesy Tyler Florence
Prep Time:
20 min
Inactive Prep Time:
hr min
Cook Time:
10 min
Level:
Easy
Serves:
4 to 6 servings
Ingredients
1 pound linguine
4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
1 large shallot, finely diced
5 cloves garlic, sliced
Pinch red pepper flakes, optional
20 large shrimp, about 1 pound, peeled and deveined, tail on
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley leaves
Directions
For the pasta, put a large pot of water on the stove to boil. When it has come to the boil, add a couple of tablespoons of salt and the linguine. Stir to make sure the pasta separates; cover. When the water returns to a boil, cook for about 6 to 8 minutes or until the pasta is not quite done. Drain the pasta reserving 1 cup of water.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter in 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Saute the shallots, garlic, and red pepper flakes (if using) until the shallots are translucent, about 3 to 4 minutes. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper; add them to the pan and cook until they have turned pink, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the shrimp from the pan; set aside and keep warm. Add wine and lemon juice and bring to a boil. Add 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons oil. When the butter has melted, return the shrimp to the pan along with the parsley and cooked pasta and reserved pasta water. Stir well and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle over a bit more olive oil and serve immediately. Enjoy! Check TFF to see what everyone else made!

Yum, Susy! I always have trouble getting the shrimp cooked properly when making this style. It always turns out a bit rubbery, which always deters me from trying these types of recipes. You'll have to tell me your trick!
