Uncle Ken Cooking Challenge 2015: Shrimp Scampi 9/52

Hi Friends!

Scrimp Scampi is one of those things that sounds all fancy and difficult to make, but I promise you--this recipe is super easy--and delicious!  I think it took 40 minutes, start-to-finish, and that included the time it took me to peel the shrimp. I served it with crusty bread, and everyone loved it.  I will definitely be making this recipe again.

Shrimp Scampi

1 1/2  lb uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 TBL olive oil
2 TBL garlic, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups white wine, I used Sauvignon Blanc
1/2 fresh lemon, juice only
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 C softened butter
1 TBL parsley
1/2 C Parmesan cheese
Thin spaghetti, or other noodle of your choice

Heat cast iron skillet with olive oil over medium high heat.  Add shrimp and cook until tender and no longer translucent. Remove shrimp and set aside.  Reduce heat to medium.

Add garlic and cook 2-3 minutes.  Do not allow garlic to brown--it will make it bitter.

Add white wine and lemon juice.  Cook until wine is reduced by half.  After it is reduced, add the Italian seasoning.

Reduce heat to low and add butter.  Stir until melted.  Add shrimp back into the sauce.  Add parsley and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve over hot noodles and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
