Shrimp Scampi
with angel hair pasta / broccoli

Active: 25 minTotal: 45 min

In this fast and easy weeknight meal shrimp is briefly marinated and then cooked in a flavorful mixture of garlic, parsley, and olive oil. Butter, fresh tomatoes, and red pepper flakes are added to make a fresh sauce that is great served over pasta.
Smarts #1: Any type of pasta will work here, but be sure to adjust your cooking time. Angel hair cooks quickly, so fettuccine or spaghetti will take longer.
Smarts #2: Boiling the pasta and broccoli together saves time (and dishes!).

Prep

  1. Shrimp - Defrost shrimp.
  2. Broccoli / Garlic / Parsley - Prep as directed. Store broccoli in one container. Combine garlic and parsley in another container. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Make marinade - (If prepping right before cooking, get water boiling for pasta when shrimp is nearly finished marinating.) Combine garlic, parsley, oil, and shrimp. Marinate for at least 20 minutes and up to 1 day. (Can be done 1 day ahead)
  4. Tomatoes - Chop tomatoes.

Make

  1. Bring a large stock pot (large enough to hold pasta and broccoli) of water to boil. Salt generously and add pasta. Cook pasta according to package directions. Add broccoli in the last 1 1/2 minutes of cooking. Drain.
  2. While pasta is boiling, heat a skillet over medium heat. Add butter. When butter is melted, add white wine, tomatoes, and red pepper flakes. Simmer for 1 minute.
  3. Add shrimp (including marinade) to tomatoes. Saute until shrimp is cooked through, ~4 minutes. Squeeze lemon juice over top and season with some salt and pepper.
  4. Serve shrimp scampi over pasta / broccoli. Enjoy!

Everyone liked this. Easy to put together and so fresh tasting

Delicious! 2 adults and one preschooler (with and appetite) easily finished 4 servings, it was so good! I did cook the broccoli separately in the microwave, then toss with a little oil, garlic salt, lemon pepper and a little squeeze of fresh lemon. After cooking the pasta, I tossed it with a little oil and a clove of pressed garlic for flavor, and to help the noodles not stick, just in case dinner was delayed. I think next time, I might serve it with some Parmesan, but just as the "cherry on top." Will definitely make this one again.

Pretty good. I would have added more salt and used raw shrimp if I made it again.

We liked it pretty well. I would have liked the sauce to be a little thicker. Like others, I felt like there was just a little something missing.

We really enjoyed this! Didn’t find it bland at all and didn’t change anything except adding an extra glove of garlic to the shrimp marinade. And some parm on top!

This came out really well! I used quartered cremini mushrooms instead of shrimp as I’m allergic to them.
