Shrimp Scampi makes a quick and easy meal

Is there anything simpler than shrimp scampi?
It’s a dish I love.

I rarely order shrimp when dining out. Basically, they never give you enough shrimp. I’m always left wanting more.  So I make shrimp at home—lots of it. If I’ve got time to grab fresh shrimp, that’s great, but for those days that I get suddenly inspired to make shrimp, I always keep a bag of frozen from Costco around.

A favorite at our house is Shrimp Scampi--

Start with the noodles, get them boiling. Five minutes in, start the shrimp.
Clean the shrimp, remove the tails and pat them dry with a paper towel.  Season with some lemon sea salt and pepper. Heat some olive oil and butter in a saucepan. Add a little minced garlic and chopped shallots. Toss the shrimp into the pan and let cook for two minutes. Turn them over and add some fresh chopped parsley, while slightly turning up the heat.  After another minute, add some fresh lemon juice and a splash of white wine. The noodles should be done by now and resting in a colander. Throw the noodles back into the pan and add the shrimp. Toss together and start plating.

Delicious food doesn't get any easier.
