Shrimp Scampi for Valentines Day!
6-8 Large shrimp, uncooked
8 oz. cooked Linguine
1/4 cup white flour
1 tbsp. garlic, chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup of white wine or white cooking wine
1 Tbsp. of FRESH squeezed lemon
A few scallions which I like but optional
3 tbsp. of parmesan cheese (shredded)-looks nice
2 tbsp. butter, soft
1 tbs. of FRESH (PLEASE FRESH) parsley, chopped
dash of salt and fresh black pepper
Lightly coat shrimp with flour and set aside
Heat oil on medium high heat
Add garlic and saute until light brown
Press shrimp into the garlic so it sticks to shrimp
Cook until shrimp is pink on one side
Turn shrimp and add 1/4 (only 1/4) of the wine
Reduce wine to half, turn heat to low.
Sprinkle shrimp with 1/2 of the cheese and parsley
Add remaining wine, butter and salt & pepper.
Add warm pasta gently stirring until butter melts
Place on dinner plate-bringing shrimp to the top
Garnish with remaining cheese and parsely.
