Easy Shrimp Scampi Over Pasta

My favorite Friday Guest poster - Janelle - is Comfy In The Kitchen and bringing us a great new recipe!    

 This is going to crack you up- Of all things, my 7 year old loves shrimp! It is his absolute favorite thing to eat! Trust me, we have to limit his intake because....well, shrimp can cost a pretty penny! I'd like to share with you my Little Guy's favorite dinner... Shrimp Scampi (Oh, help me! lol)

Start with large, fresh, peeled and deveined shrimp (uncooked)- rinse with cold water in colander

Get the rest of your ingredients ready: Butter, lemons, pasta, garlic, parsley, olive oil, salt and pepper

Melt butter and oil over medium heat

Add 4 cloves of minced garlic

In another large pot, boil water with a Tbsp of olive oil- add pasta and cook until tender. 

squeeze juice out of 2 lemons into a small dish

After butter, oil and garlic is cooking for about 2 mins add shrimp salt and pepper - cook for about 5 mins until the shrimp turns from pink to white

Turn heat off and add lemon juice and parsley

Combine well

Drain pasta but do not rinse- pour pasta into shrimp mixture and toss

Garnish with more parsley and lemon slice! 

This was NOT a pose...he honestly gets THIS excited when he gets his favorite dinner.
 Bless his picky eater loves Shrimp Scampi!

Aw, bless him! When I was about 7, I loved shrimp, too. We only got them as a special treat when my grandparents came to visit, but I remember my grandfather steaming shrimp with Old Bay seasoning. I loved it, and this looks pretty fantastic, too!
