Ingredients:

  • 1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 8 oz linguine or your favorite pasta
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Red pepper flakes (optional, for a little heat)

Instructions:

  1. Cook the linguine or pasta according to package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and butter over medium-high heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.
  3. Add the shrimp to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until they turn pink and opaque. Remove the shrimp from the skillet and set them aside.
  4. In the same skillet, pour in the chicken broth and bring it to a simmer. Allow it to cook for about 2 minutes to reduce slightly.
  5. Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the heavy cream, lemon juice, and grated Parmesan cheese. Stir continuously until the sauce thickens, about 3-4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and add red pepper flakes if you like a bit of heat.
  6. Return the cooked shrimp to the skillet and add the chopped fresh parsley. Stir everything together and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to heat the shrimp through.
  7. Serve your Creamy Garlic Shrimp Scampi over the cooked linguine or pasta. Garnish with extra Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley, if desired.
