Description

I love fresh, light, yet flavorful dishes! My Skinny Shrimp Scampi is one of those dishes. Garlic, lemon, wine, shrimp and pasta … it comes together in 15 minutes, healthy and good for any night that you need to get dinner on the table pronto!

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces, weight Uncooked Spaghetti Noodles
  • 1 pound Raw Shrimp, Shells And Tails Removed
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 4 cloves Garlic, Minced Or Pressed
  • 2 teaspoons Crushed Red Pepper Flake
  • 1 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons White Wine
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Zest
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Chopped Cilantro
  • 2 Tablespoons Grated Parmesan Cheese

Preparation

Boil pasta according to package instructions for al dente then drain it (reserve ½ cup of the starchy cooking water before you drain) and set the pasta and the reserved water aside.

In a skillet over medium-high heat saute the shrimp in the olive oil and garlic. Stir and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the shrimp are bright pink in color. Season the shrimp with crushed red pepper flakes, sea salt and pepper.

Add the butter and wine and let it simmer until the liquid is reduced by half. Add the lemon juice and zest and let it all simmer together for 1-2 minutes. Add the shrimp mixture to your pasta. Add the reserved starchy cooking water and cilantro. Toss to combine. Add the Parmesan cheese and serve.
