Shrimp Scampi is my chosen dish for my 365 easy recipes today. As you may have noticed, I’ve been missing in action. I have been on a learning curve with my new position, and we are experiencing internet issues which doesn’t help AT ALL! Hopefully all will be resolved in that area tomorrow.
On with the recipe!
3 to 4 garlic gloves, minced
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1/4 cup olive oil
1 uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
Hot cooked angel hair pasta
In a 10-in. oven[proof skillet, sauté garlic in butter and olive until tender. Stir in the shrimp, lemon juice, pepper and oregano; cook and stir for 2-3 minutes or until shrimp turns pink.
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs and parsley. Broil 6 in. from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until topping is golden brown. Serve over pasta.
Here are the changes I made. I always make changes, it seems. Even when I don’t plan on it!
I forgot to buy garlic gloves so I used garlic powder. I think the gloves would have been way better, just saying. I also didn’t have any lemon juice but I had lime so I used it instead. Again, I think it may have altered the taste considerably but it was pretty good anyway. I think I might want to try it the correct way next time. 🙂 I added a salad and we were good to go!
