Shrimp Scampi



I remember scampi as one of my first shrimp dishes, it's super easy yet always perfect. Here I've served it with fettuccine.


Serve over rice, pasta, or grains for a sexy seafood dish. 馃拫


Yield: 3 generous servings, or more, depending on what you pair with it.


There are 3 servings per recipe below, using 1 pound of shrimp. For 6 servings, double the recipe.


INGREDIENTS:


1 pound shelled and deveined large shrimp


3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

5 tablespoons panko breadcrumbs


1 tablespoon olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced (or 1/2 teaspoon powdered garlic)

1 teaspoon white pepper

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/2 teaspoon salt


1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley


Oven temperature: 425 degrees


Method:


In a small bowl, combine melted butter and panko breadcrumbs. Set aside.


In a large bowl, combine olive oil, garlic, white pepper, red pepper flakes, and salt.

Add in the shrimp and toss well. Place shrimp, in a single layer, to a 9x13 inch baking pan.


Smear the tops of the shrimp with the panko/butter mixture, like below.


Bake for 7-8 minutes, until bubbly. Remove from oven and stir in the lemon juice. Sprinkle in the parsley, and toss gently.


Let cool slightly, then serve. What a wonderful dish...easy and soooo good.
