Today I had a hankering for shrimp scampi, I looked through my recipes I have pinned on Pinterest & the butter garlic shrimp is almost to the tee the same as shrimp scampi with the exception of one ingredient which I didn’t have on hand anyway but I knew I liked the buttered shrimp as I’ve made it before & it’s basically the same only adding spaghetti noodles, it’s very easy & quick to pull together, 15 min tops!
I cooked & drained a small bag of spaghetti noodles, adding a touch of salt & pepper
a bag of cooked shrimp found in the freezer section
1 TBS minced garlic
1 TBS dried parsley
1 stick butter (halved)
1/4 cup vegetable broth
juice of 1/2 lemon
add 1/2 of the stick of butter to skillet, add garlic & shrimp, lemon juice, vegetable broth, bring to a boil
reduce heat & add remaining half of butter one tbsp. at a time , add parsley,spaghetti noodles & blend
and you have shrimp scampi made at home!
