How to Make Our Favorite Shrimp Scampi

Step-by-Step

  1. Get a pot of water boiling for the pasta. Add salt and cook pasta according to directions. When pasta is done, drain, rinse just a bit and put back into the empty pot to stay warm.
  2. Meanwhile lets start on the shrimp. While I sometimes cook them right in the sauce, if they have been frozen, they will release water into it that I do not really like the looks of. So I will saute the shrimp in olive oil until they are just turning pink. Then set aside. Wipe out the pan.
  3. In that same skillet, add the mushrooms with just a dab of olive oil and saute for 3-5 minutes, until they start to brown and smell wonderful. Set them aside too.
    Put the butter in the skillet to melt. Add the diced garlic and saute for 30 seconds. Add the wine and simmer for a minute or so. Toss in the peas, if using, the parsley, dried tomatoes, lemon juice, green onion, salt and pepper.
  4. Add the shrimp and mushrooms back into the pan, warm it all up, tossing lightly.
  5. With this recipe, I like to plate up the servings from the kitchen.So I will scoop some pasta into the pasta bowl, spoon the shrimp and sauce over it and smother with Parmesan or Romano cheese.
    Now serve it up with a light salad and enjoy!
