Summertime – Shrimp Scampi

“made with love”

I make shrimp scampi all year long, but there is something about making it in the summer. When I’m in the beach area like I was today, I’ll buy a couple of pounds of shrimp on my way home.

  • 2 or 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 – 4 tablespoons butter (more or less depends on if you like butter)
  • fresh garlic, minced
  • salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste
  • handful of fresh parsley
  • can of chopped black olives
  • 2 pounds of raw shrimp
  • grated cheese (optional)
  • 1 1/2 pounds of quinoa spaghetti
  • splash of white wine
  • 1 cup of broth

I saute the butter and oil with minced garlic in a pan; I add the seasoning to taste, the broth and the olives. While that is cooking I peel the shrimp and start the water for the spaghetti.

While the pasta is cooking I take out maybe 4 scoops of the water and add it to the pan with the butter and oil. I will then add the shrimp and fresh parsley. When spaghetti is done I toss it with the scampi. If you are adding cheese do so now. Hope you enjoy this delicious summer dish.

Fun at the beach with my granddaughters
