Thanks to influenster for sending me this product to test. All thoughts expressed are 100% my own.
Shrimp pretty much winds up in many dishes in my family. Living so close to the coast and having the ability to get fresh shrimp most of the year causes me to use shrimp more than most. Scrimp Scampi is among one of the favorite dishes I make for my family. I admit I derived this recipe from Damn Delicious, but changed it up to customize it to the liking of my family. I altered it mainly to use my favorite Olive Oil from Filippo Berio and to cut down on the lemon. Now if you love lemon then by all means add some lemon zest on top, but for my family they prefer just the lemon juice. Influester was so nice to provide me with this Filippo Berio Delicato Olive Oil test out, and I have to say it made this recipe better than ever! So if you are interested in seeing how I made this quick and easy Shrimp Scampi!
This is seriously super easy! First clean and the shrimp so that they are ready to go. Next, what I recommend doing is chopping up the parsley and setting it aside. For this dish you can use frozen shrimp, due to the lemon brightening up the flavors. However, if you can get fresh shrimp it will make this dish even better. After chopping the parsley, go ahead and start the water to boil. As the water starts boiling, add enough Filippo Berio Delicato Olive Oil to coat a skillet.
Once the oil heats up add a tablespoon of minced garlic to the oil. Once the garlic starts sizzling, add the shrimp. The temperature will be pretty high at this point, which will cause everything to cook super quick. This is where it will all move rather quickly. Add the juice of 1 lemon to the shrimp, along with salt and pepper to taste. Once you flip the shrimp add about 1-2 cups of chicken stock. Don’t worry if you need to add more of this you can do so as the linguine is incorporated.
At this point the Linguine should be cooked al dente and can be tossed into the shrimp mixture. I normally turn the temperature down and let the linguine marinate into the sauce for a few minutes. At serving sprinkle with parmesan cheese and top with the reserved freshly chopped parsley.
