Shrimp, Broccoli, and Sun-dried Tomatoes Scampi with Angel Hair ...
For a quick and full-flavored dish, saute garlic in a mixture of butter and the rich oil from sun-dried tomatoes, then add the tomatoes and lots of fresh shrimp. Serve this heady mixture over angel hair pasta cooked with broccoli florets.
Take the advice of previous reviews and you can add a star--add white wine, more garlic, and red pepper flakes. I also seasoned the shrimp, but I used pre-cooked shrimp and sprinkled an herb seasoning on them with some lemon juice before I added them to the mixture at the end just to get them hot. And I sauteed the brocolli in the pan with the oil, garlc and sun-dried tomatoes instead of boiling it with the pasta. I used rice noodles as did someone else because I am gluten-intolerant. (I used 8oz which was way too much.) I have to agree with the review that it does not mix well. You are better off preparing the pasta and making it the base (mix in some liquid from the sauteed brocolli, garlic and sun-dried tomatoes to flavor the pasta), and then top with the shrimp, brocolli and tomato mix. Serve it on a big platter and it makes a great presentation. Top it off with black pepper and parmesan cheese and it is a winner! (I am also lactose intolerant so this was a big plus for me.)
Thanks to all the reviews. I followed the advice of several. I tossed my shrimp in basil, oregano, red and black pepper, and salt I had some fresh asparagus that needed to be used. Saute the broccoli,asparagus, 1 large mushroom, lots of garlic, and jar of fire roasted peppers, plus the can of tomatoes, not drained. To this I added a few more dashes of red pepper flakes because it seemed bland. After about 5 minutes, I added the shrimp and it was truly delicious.Don't forget to add some white wine when you put shrimp into the skillet. Will definitely make this dish again.
I liked this dish a lot. Something different from our regular nightly routine. I think the recipe is mis-quoted on the tomato quantity. That would be a TOMATO stir fry and you wouldn't see or taste anything else. I used one 8.5 oz jar and it was great. I'd suggest adding a little more shrimp if you want a meat-ier dish, but it is still good. I am not giving this 5 STARS because there is a BIG problem when you put this all together. You end up with a large pile of pasta and all of the other ingredients don't "mix" with the rest. I'd suggest either leaving a tablespoon or so of the water you boiled the pasta in with the pasta after you drain it (a friend told me this would work but I haven't tried it) OR take the easy way and just don't mix it all in. Serve up the bowl of pasta and the top it with the shrimp/tomato mixture. This tasted really good but presentation was off.
Delicious recipe! I made it twice in one week because we liked it so much. I did change it slightly by adding more garlic and I tossed the shrimp in basil, red pepper flakes and oregano before adding it to the frying pan.
