Shrimp Scampi with Linguine


I didn't grow up eating seafood, and now as an adult I'm always slightly hesitant to try it because I don't really have the taste for seafood developed. There are a few types of seafood I really enjoy though-- one of those being shrimp.

Shrimp Scampi is a fairly easy meal to prepare and is so delicious. Many of the ingredients are probably staples in your home pantry. 

Ingredients

Linguine Pasta
Shrimp
2 tbsp unsalted butter
2 tbsp olive oil
2 gloves garlic, minced
1 pinch red pepper flakes
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 lemon, juiced

Directions

Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook linguine until tender, about 6 - 8 minutes. Drain.

Melt butter with olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in garlic and red pepper flakes. Add shrimp to skillet and cook until pink, stirring occasionally. Pour white wine and lemon juice into skillet and bring to a boil. Simmer and toss linguine and shrimp into mixture until coated.

Serve with garlic bread if desired.
