Shrimp Scampi

Sometimes, I look back through my old recipes in this blog and if I find something not as appealing in terms of presentation, I give the recipe another whip. For this week, I decided to redo my easy Shrimp Scampi recipe.

Servings: 2-4
  • 450g Linguine
  • 10 pcs shrimps (peeled and deveined)
  • 10 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1/2  olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 medium fresh red tomatoes (chopped, with seeds)
  • 1 can 400g diced tomatoes
  • 1 medium green bell pepper (chopped)
  • 3 tbsp Parmesan cheese
  • A handful of freshly chopped basil leaves or 1 tsp dried basil 
  • Salt and pepper for tasting
How To: 
  • In a sauce pan, boil pasta until firm then set aside.
  • In a separate frying pan, melt butter and stir fry shrimps until orange. Set aside.
  • On a pan, heat a little olive oil, saute garlic until light brown.
  • Add cooked shrimps, chopped tomatoes and stir for a few seconds.\
  • Add canned diced tomatoes, basil and green bell pepper. Stir for as few seconds.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add pasta and Parmesan cheese then toss it evenly with the sauce.
You may top your pasta with more cheese and pair it with some hot wheat bread. Enjoy!
