Shrimp Scampi

Yield: 4 servings
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 1/4 c. olive oil
  • 1 lb. uncooked medium shrimp, peeled
  • 1/4 c. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 c. parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 c. breadcrumbs
  • parsley to taste
  • 12 oz. angel hair pasta, cooked
  1. In a 10" ovenproof skillet, saute garlic in butter and oil until tender. Stir in shrimp, lemon juice, pepper and oregano; cook and stir for 2-3 minutes or until shrimp turn pink.
  2. Sprinkle with parmesan, breadcrumbs and parsley. Place in oven and broil 6" from heat (High) for 2-3 minutes, or until topping is golden brown. Serve over pasta.
Be careful not to cook the shrimp overly fast or on very high heat, or they will acquire a texture similar to pencil eraser.
