Gluten Free Shrimp Scampi
Saturated in butter, this might not be the healthiest recipe, but I sure do love it every once in a blue moon! With that being said, I've decided to add a calorie counter to my recipes, so you can see for yourself. Thank you for the suggestion on nutrition facts, Hannah!
4 tbsp butter
4 tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic
red pepper flakes
1 lb. shrimp
.5 cup sliced cherry tomatoes
1 lb. gluten-free linguine, fettuccine or spaghetti*
.5 cup dry white wine
juice of 1 lemon
.25 cup fresh parsley to garnish
grated parmesan to top off
boil water for pasta + add pasta when water is boiled (run through cold water once cooked + let it sit in strainer until needed)
saute 2 tbsp butter, 2 tbsp olive oil, shallots, garlic, tomatoes + red pepper flakes on medium-low heat for about 10 minutes
season shrimp with salt, pepper, & garlic powder
toss shrimp in the pan with the shallot/tomato mixture & cook until pink (about 2-3 minutes)
remove shrimp from pan + keep warm
add wine + lemon to pan - bring to a boil
place mixture on simmer + add 2 tbsp butter, 2 tbsp olive oil
once butter is melted, return shrimp to pan with cooked pasta + parsley
serve + top with parmesan cheese!

If you're topping with grated parmesan then you can also add 15 calories per 1 ounce of cheese.
*There are tons of gluten-free pasta brands, but I typically buy Trader Joe's since it's so damn cheap. Target also has a great collection of cheap, gluten-free pastas. But, my all-time favorite is a local brand, Cappello's - it's wicked pricey, but worth it for a special occasion.
