10-25-16 Angel Hair Pasta w Shrimp Scampi

As soon as I saw Patience’s vibrant crop of Dill in the porch garden I knew what I wanted to do.  Yesterday I bought the shrimp and last night did the deed.


INGREDIENTS:  I cooked ¼ lb. of pasta for two.  Adjust ingredients as needed.  The amounts listed below are estimates.

1.     DeBoles angel hair pasta
2.     Shrimp, peeled and de-veined
3.     Olive oil
4.     Fresh lemon juice  ½ lemon
5.     Butter 2-3 tbsp
6.     White wine ¼ - 1/3 cup
7.     Garlic 1 large or 2 small cloves crushed
8.     Fresh dill
9.     Heavy whipping cream


While waiting for the pasta water to boil cook the garlic in olive but do not allow it to brown.  Add the butter and a sprinkling of finely chopped dill, followed by the shrimp, cooking over low-medium heat.  While the shrimp is cooking add lemon juice and the wine.

Several minutes before the pasta is ready add a small amount of cream, about 2 tablespoons.  Add the pasta to the pan, mix thoroughly, and sprinkle with fresh dill.


Sometimes you hit a home run in the kitchen.  This was just that.  I can’t wait to do it again.
