How to make my easy Shrimp Scampi recipe
First, you need to rinse the cooked shrimp with water. I just pierced the top of the shrimp ring and ran warm water into it and then drained it. They were partially defrosted by doing this.
Next, you need to chop some garlic up. I used about half a clove of garlic for mine but we are garlic lovers! You can adjust the amount of garlic to suit your preference.
Once the garlic is chopped up, place it into a preheated medium-sized frying pan and sautee the garlic with butter.
Once the garlic starts to release its amazing aroma and changes just ever so slightly golden, add in the shrimp. Give it a good stir to coat the shrimp in the butter garlic.
Season the shrimp scampi with lemon and seasonings. For a shrimp ring I use 1-2tsp of lemon and I sprinkle my seasonings to give it a nice light dusting. Not too much and not too little. You can always taste test it as you go if need be.
Allow cooking until shrimp curls slightly then sprinkle with flour. Stir occasionally until sauce thickens. Once thickened remove from heat and serve immediately!
