Shrimp Scampi and Linguine
Recipe from Food Network, Ina Garten, Barefoot Contessa
You can omit the shrimp and just
have the linguine noodles and sauce :)
(Varied a bit from the net's recipe)
RAW, deveined shrimp - 1 pound
Olive Oil - 3 TBSP
Butter - 3 TBSP (I used margarine)
Garlic - 4 Cloves, minced
Parsley - 1/3 c chopped
Lemon Juice - 1/4 c
Salt, 1 - 1 1/2 tsp
Black Pepper, 1 tsp
Red Pepper Flakes (if desired, and if you like HEAT!)
Cook linguine noodles according to package; drain and set aside.
These can boil while you prepare and cook the shrimp.
Chop and Mince 4 garlic cloves
Chop Parsley, set aside
In heavy bottom pan on medium heat,
add olive oil and butter, melt;
add garlic and saute only about 1 minute
*Don't let garlic brown!*
Add shrimp, salt, black pepper and cook for about 5 minutes
until pink, being sure to turn often for even cooking.
Do Not Drain, the sauce will coat the noodles.
Remove from heat (pour in a BIG bowl)
Add lemon juice, zest, slices, red pepper and parsley.
Stir together well; Add in linguine and toss well.
IT'S EVEN BETTER THE NEXT DAY,
if you have any left overs :)
NOTE: we rewarmed in a heavy pan on the stove top
Happy Cooking, Y'all!
