Shrimp Scampi from Executive Chef Lewis Rossman
1 lb. of dried linguini
1 lb. of cleaned prawns or shrimp
2 tbs olive oil
2 tbs minced garlic
½ cup white wine
2 tbs lemon juice
2 tbs sweet butter
1/3 cup chopped parsley
To cook the linguine, bring a pot of water to a boil and add salt. Cook the pasta until tender, but still somewhat toothsome. In a separate pot over medium heat, add the olive oil, garlic and prawns. When the prawns begin to turn orange add the white wine, cook off half of the white wine and add the lemon juice. Add the butter and parsley to the pot followed by the pasta. Allow the pasta to cook in the sauce until the sauce starts to adhere to the pasta. Place in individual bowls or one large bowl to enjoy family style.
