Shrimp scampi with jar of Garlic + Parm seasoning.
Prep Time:
10 Minutes
Cook Time:
20 Minutes
Difficulty Level:

3 tablespoons Garlic + Parm seasoning

½ cup (1 stick) softened butter

1 pound pasta, I prefer thin spaghetti

2 pounds shrimp, peeled and deveined

½ cup dry white wine

Juice of 1 lemon

½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated

¼ cup fresh parsley, rough chopped



1.      Combine Garlic + Parm seasoning with butter. Mix well. Set aside.

2.      Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook pasta according to package directions for al dente. Drain, reserving 1 cup of pasta water.  

3.      Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan over medium heat add half of the butter mixture. Once melted add in shrimp. Sauté until the shrimp have just turned pink, about 5 minutes.  

4.      Remove shrimp from the pan and keep warm.

5.      Pour the wine and lemon juice into the pan, bring to a simmer, scraping up all the bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the remaining butter mixture and 1/4 cup of the pasta water.  Once sauce is combined, fold in the pasta. If sauce feels too thick, and additional pasta water by ¼ cup increments until you have your preferred sauciness.

6.      Top the pasta with shrimp, Parmesan cheese, and parsley. Serve immediately.




Recipe Tip:
Don't over cook the shrimp. The trick is to cook them just long enough to turn pink.
