Shrimp Scampi Recipe

To make the best shrimp scampi you have to start out with good quality fresh shrimp. I like the taste of the red or pink shrimp that is wild caught in the Gulf of Mexico. They are very tender and the flavor is sweet. The black tiger shrimp is also a good choice however its a farmed shrimp and I like my shrimp to run wild before they hit the skillet!


Shell and devein shrimp, then rinse shrimp and set aside. Heat butter in large skillet over medium heat. Toss in garlic and cook for about a minute until softened but not brown. Turn up heat and add wine. Toss in the shrimp and green onions just as the wine,butter garlic mixture starts to boil. Cook until shrimp are pink and firm, about 2-3 minutes on each side depending on the size of the shrimp. Do not overcook as this will make the shrimp tough. remove from skillet and serve over a nice bed of rice. Squeeze some of the lemon juice over each serving of shrimp and rice then add a dash of sea salt and pepper to taste.
