Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp Scampi


12 oz. fetuccini ( we used 4 oz semolina + 4 oz all purpose flour and 2 eggs to make fresh fetuccini)
4 Tbsp. butter
4 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, more to drizzle
1 large shallot, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, microplaned
Pinch red pepper flakes
1 pound shrimp, tail-on peeled and deveined
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup chardonnay
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley leaves
1 laurel leaf.


Place a pot of water to boil for the pasta and add salt, a splash of olive oil and a laurel leaf. Put about 2 tablespoons of oil in a 12 inch pan over high heat and add the garlic and finely diced shallot. Once it begins to sizzle add a pinch of pepper flakes and cook until soft. Salt and pepper the shrimp and add. Cook until pink on both sides. Do not overcook! Place shrimp on a separate bowl. Cook the pasta. Add the wine and lemon juice to the pan. Heat to a boil and de-glaze. Remove from the heat and add 3 - 4 Tbsp of butter. Set aside and whisk until butter is melted. Incorporate the cooked shrimp and juices to the pan. Drain the pasta (reserve 1/2 cup of pasta water to use in sauce if needed) and add to pan. Sprinkled parsley and serve immediately.
