Shrimp Scampi - A delicious buttery garlic seafood dish that needs only a handful of ingredients & a half hour to make.
- 2 lbs shrimp deveined & peeled - leave tail shells on
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 1 tablespoon parsley flakes or 2-3 tablespoons fresh parsley
- 1 cup white wine
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 2 tablespoon butter
- salt & pepper to taste
- optional 1 lb cooked linguine, rice or crusty bread to serve
Heat olive oil in a large saute pan over medium to medium/high heat.
Add garlic and saute until fragrant - about a minute.
Add shrimp & parsley. Saute until the shrimp just start to turn pink, 3-4 minutes.
Pour in wine and cook a few minutes longer. While cooking add the tablespoon of flour in a small mixing bowl. Add about half a cup of sauce from saute pan and whisk until thoroughly combined.
Pour slurry (flour mixture) into saute pan and stir/whisk until thoroughly combined. Sauce will be lighter and a bit thickened.
Remove from heat, stir in butter until melted & combined. Salt & pepper (generously) to taste. Serve immediately. I enjoy this over pasta or with lots of crusty bread for dipping. Enjoy :)
