Shrimp Scampi with Linguini

Shrimp Scampi with Linguini

This delicious pasta is great for individuals who love pasta and seafood. It's easy to make and it takes about 45 minutes from start to finish.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 pound linguini noodles
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 2 shallots, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Pinch red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley leaves

 

Directions:

1. For the noodles, put a large pot of water on the stove to boil. When it has come to a boil, add a couple of tablespoons of salt and the linguini noodles. Stir the pasta to make sure it separates and then cover the pan. 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.

 

2. 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 you're 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 oil. When the butter has melted, return the shrimp to the pan, along with the parsley and cooked pasta. Stir well and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle over a bit more olive oil and serve immediately.
