Big K loves shrimp.
Boiled, broiled, barbecued or fried,
he'll take it any way he can get it.
I had a hankering for some garlic pasta,
so I found this recipe from Ina Garten for shrimp scampi.
Shrimp for him, pasta for me.
What's not to love?
This one has made it into our Family Recipe Book.
3/4 lb. pasta
3 T olive oil
3 T butter (unsalted)
1 1/2 garlic, minced
salt/pepper/red pepper flakes to taste
lemon juice and zest to taste
Cook pasta according to directions.
Add oil and butter to a large saute pan. Saute garlic 1-2 minutes.
Add shrimp and season with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.
Drain pasta, then add it to the pan.
Add lemon juice and zest and heat through.
