How to Make The Best Scampi - Cass's


  1. Clean and rinse shrimp. Drain well and dry with paper towels.

    Season well with salt and cracked pepper.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet until is very hot.

    Add the shrimp and saute for about 2 minutes or until about halfway cooked. Shake the pan to move around.
  3. Add the garlic and cook for about another minute. Moving the pan as it cooks. Or use a spatula, shaking the pan back n forth works best for me.
  4. Now, add the butter and reduce heat and continue cooking till melted.
  5. Stir in the parsley and lemon juice and plate immediately.

    I usually double the batch as they are delicious!
  6. Enjoy!
