A Different Type of Shrimp Scampi

21 Apr

What’s the best part of ordering mussels or shrimp that is cooked in white wine and butter? THE SAUCE!

I made a simple and quick shrimp dish last night. If you chill the shrimp after they’d be great for Shrimp Cocktail!

What you need:

1/2 Pound of Shrimp
2 TBS of Butter cubed
2 Garlic Cloves
1/2 Cup of Sweet White Wine (I used riesling)
Salt and Pepper
1 tsp of Herbs de Provence
1 Shallot, Minced
Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Whisk ingredients together except the butter and pour over shrimp, I took the tails off.
Toss shrimp in mixture and pour into a bake-safe dish with extra virgin olive oil or non-stick spray in the bottom. Spread the butter cubes around the shrimp.

Bake for 8 minutes or until pink and flip them. Return to the oven for about 3 minutes. Don’t let them over cook or they will be rubbery.

Serve with crusty bread pieces or crostini.

C’est si Yum!
