Homemade Shrimp Scampi

2 02 2010

Here’s one of those things that we typically only order when we’re out to eat but there’s no reason not to make it at home, it’s really quite easy!

  • 1 pound of shrimp, peeled and deveined, leaving the tails intact.
  • 3 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Splash of white wine
  • A sprinkle of Paprika and Parsley for garnish (if desired)

Peel and devine shrimp.

Arrange shimp in a single layer in an oven proof dish.

Put the garlic, butter, splash of wine and olive oil in a small pan and heat over low heat, just until butter is melted.

Allow the butter mixture to cool while you preheat the broiler. When the butter has cooled and the broiler is preheated, pour the butter mixture over the shrimp.

Place the shrimp in under the broiler for about 5-8 minutes or just until the shrimp turns pink, do not overcook!

Sprinkle with parsley and paprika (if desired) and serve.

I like mine as is with some warm crusty french bread to dip in the butter sauce.

It can Also be served over rice or pasta if you prefer.
