Looking for a quick & delicious weeknight meal? Frozen shrimp makes this dish an extremely satisfying and extremely easy dish which is good enough to serve to company!

Shrimp Scampi
  • 5 T olive oil
  • 6 T butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb frozen jumbo shrimp, de-veined and shells removed

Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil. Add linguine and cook according to package directions.

Melt butter and oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute (be very cautious, garlic burns quickly!). Add shrimp and cook for 5-6 minutes, until pink throughout.
