Shrimp Scampi ala Norelllaura Recipe
Try this shrimp scampi recipe served over pasta or simply with fresh bread to sop up the tasty white wine sauce.
I made this for my wife because she loves shrimp scampi. This is now her preferred recipe. She has already asked me to make it again.
Easy and delicious! I had never cooked shrimp before, but these came out cooked "to perfection." I used jarred roasted red peppers rather than raw because of their texture and flavor of the oil.
Absolutely delicious!! I add a couple handfuls of fresh spinach 5 minutes before it's done and cut down the butter to 1.5 T. Serve over whole wheat pasta with garlic bread and this recipe is to die for!
I made this an my whole family loved it. Regarding comments from other reviewers, I cooked the garlic and peppers for 20 minutes, as I thought this would infuse the flavor into the oil more, which it did. I just had to adjust the temperature to ensure the oil did not boil and burn the peppers. Also regarding the flour. Next time I plan to sift the flour and use less, but I save the cooking liquid from the pasta and added about a cup back to the sauce to loosen it, I also added the pasta back to the sauce to finish cooking. Next time I will add more olive oil and garlic but less lemon. I may even experiment with finishing it with a tablespoon or two of cream. All in all this recipe is a winner because the base recipe works and there are infinite modifications you can make to suit your taste that work as well.
