Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp Scampi

Bright lemon meets sweet shrimp in this classic meal.

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp butter

2 Tbsp DLM Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

4 garlic cloves, minced

Sea salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes to taste

½ cup white wine or broth

1.5 lbs Carolina shrimp, peeled and deveined

Juice of ½ lemon

Chopped parsley for garnish

Cooked pasta (try with Laganelle lemon pasta)

Directions:

In a large sauté pan over medium heat, melt the butter with the olive oil. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes until fragrant, about 1 minute, then add the wine or broth, salt, and pepper and bring to a simmer. Let reduce by half, about 2-3 minutes. Add the shrimp and sauté until they just start to turn pink, about 2-4 minutes. Squeeze the lemon juice over the shrimp and garnish with parsley.

Serve with freshly cooked pasta if desired.

Excellent with a DLM French Baguette!

Pairs well with:

  • Fontaleoni Vernaccia di San Gimignano

A wonderfully pleasant white wine from Tuscany that is superb with seafood.

  • Stella Artois Lager

A bottom-fermented blond lager with a full body and clean finish.
