Shrimp Scampi Fra Diavolo ~ this fiery romantic dish can be whipped up in 30 minutes with a bag of frozen shrimp and pantry staples. This is the best shrimp scampi recipe I've tried, and also the easiest.
1lbfrozen peeledde-veined, tail on shrimp, defrosted (use cooked or uncooked)
1/2cupdry white wine or vermouth
juice of 1 lemon
1tspdried chili flakesmore or less to taste
1/4cupchopped fresh parsley
salt and fresh cracked black pepper
2Tbspunsalted buttercut in chunks
more chopped parsley
Cook the pasta according to the package directions, but cook just until tender and al dente, usually a few minutes short of what the instructions tell you. Reserve 1/2 cup of the liquid, then drain and set aside.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet, and saute the garlic for several minutes, stirring constantly so it doesn't brown. If you are using raw shrimp, add them now, and saute for a few minutes until they have turned opaque and start to curl. Be sure to turn them at least once so they cook evenly.
Add the wine to the pan, along with the lemon juice and chili flakes and let it boil until slightly reduced. If you are using cooked shrimp, add it now, along with the parsley.
Stir in the butter, a bit at a time. Return the pasta to the pan, and toss well. Add some of the reserved pasta water if you need more sauce.
Serve hot with extra parsley, and Parmesan cheese, if desired.
