Shrimp Scampi - So Delicious You Make It Every Week!

Shrimp Scampi
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 3-4 (or more) large garlic cloves, minced (or about 1 to 2 tablespoons minced garlic)
  • 1 1/4 pounds (600 grams) large shrimp prawns, shelled with tails on or off
  • Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine or broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes or to taste (optional)
  • 1/3 teaspoon of either lemon juice or lemon peel
  • 1 teaspoon chopped parsley


    Heat olive oil and 2 tablespoons of butter in a large pan or skillet. Then add the shrimp, season
    with salt and pepper to taste and sauté for 1-2 minutes on one side and then flip. Add butter to the mix. Add garlic mixture and sauté until fragrant (about
    2 minutes.)

    Add the white wine and red pepper flakes (if using). Bring to a simmer for 1-2 minutes or until wine reduces by about half and the shrimp is cooked through (don't overcook the shrimp).

    Add your choice of pasta to the mix and cook for about 3-4 minutes. Plate and enjoy.

I know you are going to love this recipe. Even though it’s a pasta dish, it still feels like a light meal. The scampi sauce is why – it’s fresh and airy even though it’s covered in garlic. The wonderful lemon flavor pops through, and the kick of white wine seals the deal!
