For the Pasta

  • 1 pound linguine
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

For the Shrimp Scampi

  • 1 pound shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 tablespoons chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock or white wine
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


For the Pasta

  • Set a large pot of water over medium heat and bring to a boil. Once it comes to a boil, add a couple of tablespoons of salt and the linguini. Stir to make sure the pasta separates and then 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 and toss with olive oil.

For the Shrimp Scampi

  • Set a large skillet over medium heat. Add the butter to melt along with the olive oil. Saute the garlic and red onion. Add in shrimp and cook until the shrimp turns pink, about 2-3 minutes. Remove the shrimp and pour in chicken stock and lemon juice. Increase heat to medium-high heat until the stock comes to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in the cooked pasta, shrimp, salt and fresh parsley. Lightly toss shrimp to make sure it is well coated.
  • Serve immediately.
