I am definitely a lover of food and all of it’s magnificence! Absolutely nothing beats the smell of a freshly prepared dish on the stove or in the oven. I obviously adore a good seafood recipe so of course I just HAD to share with you this remarkable recipe for shrimp scampi that I got from the Food Network! This Shrimp Scampi recipe is a BLAST of wonderful flavor that the whole family can enjoy!
2 lbs of shrimp still in shell
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp of dry white wine
Salt & black pepper to taste
1 1/2 sticks (about 12Tbsp) of butter
4 tsp garlic (minced)
1/4 cup of shallots (minced)
3 Tbsp parsley leaves (minced)
1 tsp rosemary leaves (minced)
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp lemon zest
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 XL egg yolk
2/3 cup of panko (Japanese dried bread flakes)
Lemon wedges used for serving
Preheat your oven to 425 (F)
Peel, devein, and butterfly your shrimp (make sure to leave the tails on). Place shrimp in mixing bowl and toss them gently with your olive oil, 2tsp salt & 1tsp pepper and wine. Set aside on countertop while you make your butter and garlic mix.
Take a small bowl, and mash your butter with the parsley, rosemary, garlic, red pepper flakes, shallots, lemon juice and zest, panko, egg yolk 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper until they are all well blended.
Start from the outer edge of your 14 in oval shaped gratin dish and arrange the shrimp cut side down so that they all touch the bottom of the dish with their tails curling up and towards the middle of the gratin dish. Pour the marinade over the shrimp. Spreading the butter mixture evenly atop the shrimp. Place in the oven and bake for about 10-12min (until it is hot and bubbly). If you would like to brown the top, place it under the broiler for about 1min. Serve it with your lemon wedges and enjoy!
