  • 1/2 cup shallots(67g) 1/8-inch dice
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic(10g)
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice(79ml)

  1. Combine shrimp with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a large saute pan over medium-low heat. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter.
  3. Once butter is melted add shallots, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Stir and cook until shallots are tender and garlic is fragrant but not browned, 2 minutes.
  4. Add shrimp to the pan in one layer, turn heat up to medium. Cook for 2 minutes, not moving the shrimp.
  5. Flip shrimp over and cook until just cooked through 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl.
  6. Turn heat up to medium-high, add in lemon juice, zest, and wine. Bring to a boil and allow sauce to reduce by half, about 4 to 6 minutes.
  7. Turn heat down to low and whisk in 3 tablespoons of butter to create a light thickened and emulsified sauce.
  8. Add cooked shrimp, tomatoes, and parsley. Stir and cook until shrimp is warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes.
  9. Garnish shrimp scampi with pepper and parsley. Serve with lemon wedges, crusty bread or pasta.
