The Freshman Cook: Sensational Shrimp Scampi

Are you a shrimp lover?

 Me too!

 Do you like yours boiled, grilled, sauteed, or fried?

Me too!

The beauty of shrimp is that it is so versatile.
 It can be used as an appetizer, a soup or salad,

a side dish, or an entree, and there are just so many ways to prepare it.

So a few days ago I decided to go scampi style and it was incredible!

I received some packs of spices from Healthy Solutions Spice Blends to try out, and the Shrimp Scampi blend had a recipe on the back that turned out to be a definite winner!

2 tablespoons Olive Oil

2 tablespoons Shrimp Scampi Seasoning

2 tablespoons Water

1/2 cup Cooking Sherry

12 ounces Noodles

1/2 cup Petite Diced Tomatoes
Peel and devein your shrimp. I devein both sides using the knife above. A toothpick works good also. Place your shrimp flat on the bottom of a pan. Sprinkle both sides with the seasoning.  Add the water and 1/4 cup of the sherry. Let this stand while you cook your noodles. Cook your pasta. I used whole wheat angel hair pasta.
Heat your oil on medium heat. Add your shrimp including the liquid. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until it turns pink. Don’t overcook, or your shrimp will become rubbery. Add your tomatoes and the rest or the sherry just long enough to heat them. Adding the sherry at the end will enhance the flavor. Serve over your pasta.
