Shrimp Scampi with Linguine

> > Did you know I can cook? Well, now you do... I love making this recipe. It is SUPER YUMMY! This recipe comes from the Oh So Great Tyler Florence (from Food Network) I will show you how to make this WITH PICTURES too! I added an extra ingredient to this recipe (my mussels...YUM.) I hope you enjoy!

Shrimp Scampi Linguine


  • 1 LB linguine
  • 4 T butter
  • 4 T EVOO, plus more for drizzling
  • 2 shallots, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Pinch red pepper flakes, optional
  • 1 LB shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 or 2 boxes of "Private Selections" White Wine & Garlic Mussels
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine (I used Chardonnay)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley leaves

  1.  For the pasta, put a large pot of water on the stove to boil. When it has come to the boil, add a couple of tablespoons of salt and the linguine. Stir ti make sure the pasta separates; cover. When the water returns to a boil, cook for about 6 to 8 minutes or until the pasta is not quite done. Drain the pasta.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter in 2 tablespoons EVOO over medium-high heat. Saute the shallots, garlic, and red pepper flakes (if using) until the shallots are translucent, about 3 to 4 minutes. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper; add them to the pan and cook until they have turned pink, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the shrimp from the pan; set aside and keep warm. In another pan, cook your mussels, according to the package, and set aside. Add wine and lemon juice and bring to a boil. Add 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons oil. When the butter has melted, return the shrimp and mussels to the pan along with parsley and cooked pasta.

***I do not have the final product. It was soooo good, we just ate ALL up!!***
