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!

Good but a little bland. I am going to add Parmesan and more pepper to the leftovers

Where did all the flavor go? Had to add a lot of salt, pepper and red pepper at the table.

We were impressed. I’d like to do more broccoli and maybe a bit more sauce. Really great flavor and a great way to use up tomatoes from the garden.

Loved the garlicky sauce (definitely threw in a clove or two extra for good luck). This was a delicious and fresh meal perfect for a hot day!
