Shrimp Scampi

  • 20-25 shrimp peeled, de-veined (tails removed, if you prefer)
  • 6-8 button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 c white wine (I used Chardonnay because it was on hand)
  • 2-3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 bunch green onions sliced
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 small tomatoes, diced
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil
  • 1/2 lb fettuccine (or your favorite pasta)
  • hard cheese like Romano or Parmesan to serve on top
  1. In a large skillet, add 2 tbsp olive oil, garlic, shrimp, mushrooms and green onions
  2. Saute over medium heat for 3-4 minutes
  3. Add wine and butter
  4. Add lemon juice, season with salt and pepper to taste
  5. Cook until shrimp are completely pink and tender. Careful not to overcook them or they will be like rubber!
  6. Add tomatoes and remove from heat.
  7. Serve over pasta with grated cheese on top.

PS Please excuse my absence, I have had guests and sickness and busy Holy Days! I hope to get back on track soon!
