Shrimp Scampi

This is one of my favorite meals for Lent, and it's Shrimp Scampi.  

Look what my daughter ordered for my birthday!  Isn't it the best??  I put it above my pantry.

Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp Scampi

This Shrimp Scampi can be served over fettuccine or spaghetti. I am giving the full recipe, but I only make half.


  • pound linguini (I often use spaghetti)
  • 4 T. butter
  • 4 T. olive oil
  • 2 shallots, finely diced (I often use scallions)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • pinch of red pepper flakes, optional
  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled & deveined (I use frozen shrimp that has been thawed & I remove the tails)
  • Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley (I use dried & just a sprinkle)


  1. For the pasta, put a large pot of water on to boil. When it comes to a boil, add a couple of tablespoons of salt & then the pasta. Stir to make sure it separates. Cook for about 6-8 minutes or until the pasta is not quite done. Drain the pasta.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt 2 T. butter in 2 T. olive oil over medium-high heat. Saute' the shallots, garlic & red pepper flakes until the shallots are translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Season the shrimp with salt & pepper, Add them to the pan & cook until they turn pink, about 2-3 minutes. Remove the shrimp from the pan & set aside.
  3. Add wine & lemon juice & bring to a boil. Add 2 T. butter & 2 T. olive oil. When the butter has melted, return the shrimp to the pan along with the parsley & cooked pasta. Stir well & season with salt & pepper.
  4. * My addition is that I like to grate Parmesan cheese over the top before serving. Enjoy!
