SHRIMP SCAMPI-OOOH LA LA

SHRIMP SCAMPI SERVED OVER QUINOA-SIMPLE & DELISH! I USED 2 POUNDS SHRIMP AND DOUBLED THE RECIPE BELOW:



  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons good olive oil
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 pound large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • handful of chopped scallions
  • splash of white wine
  • 1/2 lemon, zest grated
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons)
  • 1/4 lemon, thinly sliced in half-rounds
In a pan, melt the butter and olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute-be careful not to burn the garlic.  Add the shrimp,  salt and the pepper and saute until the shrimp have just turned pink, about 5 minutes.  Stir frequently.   Add the wine, lemon juice, zest and cook 1 minutes.  Remove heat and add the scallions & lemon slices.  Serve over quinoa!

Quinoa-Boil 1c. quinoa and 2 cups water.  Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook on med - low about 12 mins.
