Butter Olive oil Shrimp thawed) – Lemon Dry white wine Pasta (angel hair or any pasta you have on hand) Garlic Red pepper flakes Kosher salt Pepper Parsley (optional)
In a large pot of boiling water cook pasta according to directions. I add a little olive oil to the pot to prevent sticking.
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add the garlic to the oil. Watch it carefully to avoid burning it. You may need to turn down the heat a bit and just let it soften but not burn.
Add olive oil, shrimp and dry white wine. Cook, stirring occasionally until the shrimp turns pink. About 2-4 minutes. Wild-caught Argentinian Red Shrimp cook in about half the time of traditional shrimp.
Stir in lemon juice and bring it to a simmer.
Drain pasta and toss with the shrimp mixture. Add lemon wedges. Season to taste with Kosher salt and pepper. Garnish with red pepper flakes and parsley. Serve immediately.
Enjoy your Lemon Shrimp Scampi Pasta!
