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!


Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp butter

  • 4 tbsp olive oil

  • 2 shallots

  • 3 cloves garlic

  • red pepper flakes

  • 1 lb. shrimp

  • salt

  • pepper

  • garlic powder

  • .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


The Process

  • 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.
