How to Make Easy Shrimp Scampi in Less Than 15 Minutes!

Shrimp scampi is a classic dish every cook needs in their recipe arsenal. It sounds fancy, but it's really easy to make.

You'll need:

  • 1 1/2 – 2 pounds large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 – 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • chopped parsley
  • juice of half a lemon
  • salt and pepper
  • red pepper flakes (optional)
  • spaghetti, fettuccine or linguine noodles, cooked

Here's how to make it:

  1. Heat the butter and olive oil in a skillet. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, 1 minute.
  2. Pour in the wine or chicken broth. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook until it reduces by half, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the shrimp to the skillet. Cook until they just turn pink, about 3 minutes. Add the chopped parsley, red pepper flakes, if using, and lemon juice. Stir to combine. Serve over hot cooked pasta.
