Transcript:Shrimp ScampiHi, I'm Rachel Edelman for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make shrimp scampi.
Shrimp Scampi IngredientsFor this recipe, you'll need:
- 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp
- 1/3 cup butter
- 4 tablespoons minced garlic
- 6 green onions
- 1/4 cup dry white wine
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley
Prepare the ShrimpFirst, rinse the shrimp and remove all of the shell but the tail. At the market, these shrimp were already deveined, which leaves a cut at the top of the shrimp.
With your fingers, pull the shell from the top and feel all the way around the body of the shrimp. Hold on to the tail and break off the shell.
Rinse it off and place the shrimp on a towel to dry. Do this for all of the shrimp.
Prepare the VegetablesNext prepare the vegetables. Thinly slice the green onions. You can also cut them with kitchen shears.
Then chop 2 tablespoons of parsley.
Cook the ShrimpNow, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Put in the butter, and let it melt and cook so there is almost no white foam left.
Next, pour the shrimp into the pan and quickly arrange them in a single layer. I'm going to cook the shrimp in two batches.
Add the GarlicAfter about a minute, add the minced garlic all around the pan. One minute later, flip over the shrimp. They should look nice and pink.
Another 2 minutes and they are done. Remove them from the pan and place to the side. Cook all of the shrimp.
Make the Shrimp Scampi SauceIn the pan, add the green onions, the wine, and the fresh lemon juice. Bring to a boil and cook for about 30 seconds.
Remove the sauce from the heat, and mix in the parsley. Pour the shrimp and garlic back into the pan, and coat the shrimp with the sauce.
Once its done, add to your favorite pasta or arrange on a serving plate with some parsley garnish. Enjoy.
