Ingredients

For the shrimp

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 garlic cloves, silvered
  • 1 Pinch of kosher salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 Pound large frozen, uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/2 Cup white wine
  • 4 Cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons finely chopped flat leaf parsley

Directions

For the shrimp

Heat a large sauté pan on medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-high and add the olive oil and butter.

Once the butter melts, foams up, and subsides, add the garlic, a pinch of salt and red pepper flakes.

Sauté for a minute, or until you see the edges of some of the garlic just beginning to brown.

As soon as the garlic begins to brown, add the shrimp to the pan. Add white wine and stir to combine. Increase the heat to high and let the wine boil vigorously for 1-2 minutes.  

Right before serving, add spinach to the pan and stir until spinach is just wilted. Also delicious served over angel hair pasta.

Top with lemon juice and garnish with parsley. 

Shrimp Scampi Shopping Tip

Seafood shopping is quite easy in the general sense. Rule of thumb: if it smells fishy, don't buy. Fresh seafood should smell mild and more like the ocean and sea water rather than fish.
