• Shrimp & Pickle Scampi Posted on April 29, 2013

    Shrimp & Pickle Scampi Today is National Shrimp Scampi Day! Shrimp Scampi generally includes some sort of "pickled" product (pickled artichokes or capers are quite common), so try substituting chopped pickles to your favorite recipe instead!!


    2 tablespoons olive oil
    4 large cloves garlic
    1 pound medium to large shrimp, peeled and deveined
    2 tablespoons chopped dill pickles
    1/3 cup dry white wine (or chicken stock)
    2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    2 to 3 tablespoons butter
    2 teaspoons lemon zest
    2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    Pinch of red pepper flakes
    Shredded or grated parmesan cheese (optional)
    Hot, cooked pasta (we like it best with spaghetti or fettucini)

    Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic. Cook for 30 seconds. Add shrimp. Season shrimp with salt and red pepper flakes. Add pickles, wine and lemon juice and cook until the shrimp turn pink, about 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the butter, lemon zest and 2 tablespoons of parsley. Spoon the shrimp and the extra sauce over hot cooked pasta. Serve with a Parmesan cheese on top if you want to. (I usually do!)
