Shrimp scampi

Shrimp scampi is a classic Italian-American dish that features succulent shrimp cooked in garlic butter and white wine sauce. Here’s a simple recipe to prepare it:


  • 1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 8 oz linguine or spaghetti, cooked al dente
  • Lemon wedges, for garnish


  1. In a shallow dish, mix together the flour, salt, and black pepper. Add the shrimp and toss to coat evenly.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add the garlic and sauté for about 1 minute or until fragrant.
  3. Add the shrimp to the skillet and cook for about 2 minutes on each side, or until pink and lightly browned. Remove the shrimp from the skillet and set aside.
  4. Pour the white wine and chicken or vegetable broth into the skillet and bring to a simmer, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.

  1. Add the lemon juice and chopped parsley to the sauce, and stir to combine.
  2. Return the shrimp to the skillet and toss to coat in the sauce. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, until the shrimp are heated through.
  3. Serve the shrimp scampi over a bed of cooked linguine or spaghetti, and garnish with lemon wedges and additional parsley, if desired.
