Shrimp Scampi is one of those recipes that is both easy and at the same time elegant. Super pungent with fresh garlic, the flavor is fantastic but may be too much for folks with GERD or Acid Reflux. Using Roasted Garlic may help. Cooking garlic for longer helps reduce the thiosulfinates that are responsible for the biting flavor of all alliums (onions, leeks, garlic, scallions).
Servings: 2 | Serving size: 4 ounces shrimp with 2 ounces pasta
Cooking Time: 30 Minutes
This recipe can be easily be multiplied but does not make very good leftovers. This recipe also requires making Roasted Garlic.
Serve with Parmesan Squash or Herbed Zucchini or Green Beans with Red Onion or Candied Carrots
Peel and then mash the roasted garlic with a fork in a small bowl.
Add the butter and minced parsley and blend together well. This is best done at least 2 hours before serving, but overnight is fine (and might be even better).
Place the water in a large stockpot over high heat.
When the water begins boiling, add the pasta and cook for about 8 – 12 minutes (or according to package directions) until just done.
After the pasta has been cooking for about 3 - 4 minutes, place a large skillet over medium high heat.
Add the scampi butter, and when it melts, add the shrimp.
Cook for about 4 minutes, tossing occasionally.
Add the white wine and continue to cook the shrimp, tossing occasionally.
Cook for another 4 minutes. If the sauce reduces too much and is too thick, add some of the pasta water one tablespoon at a time.
Drain the pasta and add it to the pan with the shrimp. Toss to coat, cooking for about one minute.
