Shrimp Scampi and Roasted Asparagus

Ok this is one of our favorite recipes so far….we actually raved about it so much to my family that my brother requested it for his birthday dinner before he’d even tasted it! I, of course, found the recipe on Pinterest from this site.

Prep: 20 minutes

Cook: 8 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups white wine (I used dry white cooking wine)
  • 1/2 fresh lemon, Juice only
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Angel hair pasta

Directions:

Boil water in a pot for the pasta. Heat olive oil in a saute pan (the recipe suggested a cast iron skillet and that is what  I used) over medium high heat. Add shrimp and saute on each side for about 2-4 minutes. Meanwhile, add angel hair pasta to boiling water and cook until al dente.

Remove the shrimp and cover. Add garlic to pan for about 2-3 minutes but do not brown it. Add the white wine and lemon juice. Cook sauce mixture until it reduces by half. Reduce the heat to low and add the Italian seasoning and butter. Put the shrimp back in the pan with the sauce mixture and then add parsley, salt, and pepper. Drain pasta and then pour sauce mixture with shrimp over the pasta. Add Parmesan and serve.

Enjoy!

Honey Lime Shrimp

This shrimp is probably the best shrimp I have ever tasted. The marinade is delicious and would probably taste great on chicken as well. I served it with Garlic Lime Chicken and Grilled Pineapple.
