Shrimp Scampi Dinner

This is a very easy meal to make!

Be sure to buy the freshest shrimp you can find. We have a seafood

store locally that brings in really fresh fish and seafood. The shrimp is

always much better quality and fresher when purchased there!

1 lb. of shrimp (you can double this if needed)

Fresh cilantro chopped

White wine

Fresh garlic (about 1 to 2 medium cloves to taste) sliced, chopped or minced (I use the garlic zoom featured here)

Olive oil

Fresh cracked pepper

 

Remove shells and clean the shrimp.

Heat a couple of TBS. of olive oil in a skillet. (we use the side burner on the grill when cooking seafood sometimes to keep the house from getting all stinky!)

Saute the shrimp for a few minutes then add the cracked pepper & garlic. Saute for another couple of minutes then pour in the white wine

and simmer for another few minutes.

I love this recipe served over nice hot fluffy Jasmine rice!

And as shown in the photo it goes very well with fresh cooked brussel sprouts!

Bona petit!

  1. My shrimp always ends up so tough. I have tried the not too long cooking, know that can be a reason. The nice and cold routine. Room temp. Have never tried fresh as in alive, just can’t do that. Any hints of why I always end up with tough shrimp.

      I would recommend steaming instead of boiling for one. Then be very careful not to over cook them.

      They come out perfect every time when you steam them fresh just for a few minutes and watch them.

      Hope that helps. :-)
