Garlic and Chive Shrimp Scampi
1/2 Cup unsalted butter
2 Pounds extra large shrimp, shelled, deveined, and rinsed
10 Cloves garlic, crushed and finely minced
1/3 Cup chopped parsley
2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 Cup fresh chive blossoms, plucked apart or freshly chopped
1/2 Pound whole wheat linguini
Salt to taste
Fill a large saucepan with enough water to cook the linguini. Turn
the stove to high, and heat the water to boiling. Add about 2
tablespoons salt, and return to boil. Add the linguini and cook
according to package directions.
While the pasta is cooking, heat the butter in a saucepan over
medium heat until butter stops foaming. Add the garlic and
sautè until soft, about 2 minutes. Add the shrimp and sautè
until the shrimp is pink and tender, about 4 to 5 minutes.
Add the parsley, salt, and lemon juice, and stir. Remove from
heat. Strain the pasta and place in a large, shallow dish.
Pour 1/2 of the shrimp sautè over the pasta and toss.
Pour remaining shrimp mixture over pasta and sprinkle
with chive blossom or chopped chive. Enjoy!
