Shrimp Scampi

Guilty pleasure, I love buttery shrimp scampi and could eat piles of it on top of noodles.  Derek prefers it over rice.  This recipe is good and quick and easy.

SHRIMP SCAMPI

Ingredients:

  • I lb raw shrimp, tail on (I usually take them off cuz it’s easier for my kids to eat that way- but I think it helps to flavor the butter if left on while cooking)
  • 1/2 C butter
  • 1 Tbsp dried mustard
  • 1 Tbsp dried parsley (I generally have fresh parsley around and did tonight, so I opted for that instead)
  • 1 Tbsp garlic crushed
  • 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice (you could probably do more I probably did tonight)
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1 tsp water

Directions:

  1. Preheat over to 450 degrees.
  2. Place shrimp in a pan to bake in oven.
  3. Combine all the ingredients, minus the shrimp, and melt in a sauce pan.
  4. Then, pour sauce over shrimp and bake in oven 7-15 minutes depending on size.  Stirring half way through.  You kind of just have to watch closely.  As soon as they turn from gray to pink they are done.  I used smaller shrimp today and they were done in 6 or 7 minutes.
  5. I like to serve them on top of whole wheat linguine, but they could also be served over rice or just on their own.
