Easy Shrimp Scampi Recipe

We love seafood and we love it prepared a variety of different ways. Just last week we decided to make some homemade shrimp scampi and this was the recipe that we used. It tastes even better than the scampi you get in your local seafood restaurant. When we make this, we love it served alongside a good garden salad and some homemade Italian garlic bread.

Easy Shrimp Scampi Recipe

3 oz. cooked and drained spaghetti noodles
1/2 small clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon butter (not margarine)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Old Bay
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 large cooked shrimps, peels removed

In a large skillet over medium heat melt together the minced garlic, butter, extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice, Old Bay and the salt. Once mixture is hot, stir in the shrimp, coating it well in the mixture. Simmer on low for 2 minutes, remove. Let stand for 3 to 4 minutes and then toss the cooked & drained spaghetti noodles into the shrimp mixture. Serve immediately.
