Shrimp Scampi

Ingredients :

4 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

6 cloves garlic, minced

1 cup dry white wine or chicken broth (or a mix of both)

¾ teaspoon La Baleine Kosher Sea Salt

¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Fresh ground black pepper

1 ½ pounds large shrimp, shells removed

⅓ cup chopped fresh parsley + extra for garnish

Juice of half a lemon

 

To serve: cooked pasta or a crusty bread

Instructions :

In a large skillet, melt the butter with the olive oil. Add the garlic and sauté for about a minute before stirring in the wine or broth, kosher seal salt, red pepper flakes and plenty of black pepper. Bring to a simmer and continue cooking until the liquid is reduced by half, 2-3 minutes.

Toss in the shrimp and cook just until they turn pink, about 2-4 minutes (depending on their size). Remove from the heat, stir in the parsley and lemon juice and serve immediately over pasta or alongside bread.
