How to Make Shrimp Scampi with Pasta:

To start, I begin by setting a large skillet over medium heat. I then add the butter to melt along with the olive oil. Once the butter has melted, I add my garlic and red onion and saute until tender.

Next, add in shrimp and cook until the shrimp turns pink, about 2-3 minutes. Remove the shrimp and pour in the chicken stock and lemon juice. Now, increase the heat to medium-high heat until the stock comes to a boil. Remove it from heat and stir in cooked pasta, shrimp, salt and fresh parsley. Lightly toss shrimp to make sure it is well coated and serve!

Here’s my favorite shrimp scampi recipe. I think you should make it soon!
