Tom’s Take

{Katie’s Kitchen} Easy Shrimp Scampi

Brought to you by Catoctin Mountain Orchard.

I was looking for something to make the other night for dinner and realized I had most of the ingredients for shrimp scampi. My version is dairy free, too, which was exciting to me!

I used a 1lb of peeled frozen large shrimp and defrost them in cold water. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Then, I cooked my angel hair pasta according to the box. You can use any kind of pasta you like for this recipe. Set aside.

In a large pan, add olive oil, butter (optional)- I used vegan butter, minced garlic and red pepper flakes (optional)- saute for a few minutes.

Add shrimp to the pan, sprinkle with italian seasoning mix. Add 1/4 cup of chicken broth (if you have white wine, you can substitute this.) Then, add lemon juice. Let juices reduce a bit.

Add in your pasta and toss with sauce and shrimp, sprinkle parsley on top. Add salt to taste.

Add parmesan on top…DONE!
