Shrimp Scampi

Our take on a quick and simple seafood classic. You can’t beat the flavors of garlic, butter, white wine, and shrimp!


Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 10 mins
Yield: 4 servings


  • 1-1/2 pounds large or extra-large shrimp, shelled
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • Crusty bread


  1. Step One

    Toss shrimp with the salt and baking soda and let stand 10 minutes.

  2. Step Two

    Melt the olive oil and butter in a large skillet (preferably 12-inch) and add the garlic to the pan; cook 1-minute, stirring frequently. Add the wine and red pepper flakes and bring to a simmer. Let the wine simmer for about 2 minutes or until reduced by half.

  3. Step Three

    Add the shrimp and cook, stirring frequently, until just cooked through, about 2-3 minutes. Add black pepper to taste and grate the zest of the lemon into the pan. Squeeze the juice from half the lemon into the pan. Taste for seasoning and toss with the parsley and chives. Cut the other half of the lemon into wedges and serve with crusty bread.
