Shrimp Scampi Recipe – 10-Minute Meal
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 5 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 teaspoons red pepper
- pinch of sea salt & pepper
1/2 cup dry white wine
- Sub: 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth mixed with juice from 1/2 lemon
- 1 lb raw jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cracked pepper
- juice from 1/2 lemon
- 1/4 cup chopped parsley
In a mixing bowl, pat the shrimp dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle on baking soda and black pepper, and gently toss then set aside.
Set a steel or cast iron pan on medium-high heat, then add the butter and olive oil.
Once it gets hot, add the garlic and stir immediately (so it doesn’t burn) for 1 minute.
Lower the heat to medium and add a pinch of salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes.
Pour in the white wine and bring it to a simmer. Let it reduce to about half, about 3 minutes.
Once reduced, increase the heat to medium-high, then add the shrimp. Cook for 5 – 7 minutes, or until the shrimp have turned pink and are plump.
Squirt lemon juice over the shrimp and garnish with parsley. Enjoy your choice of greens!
