Ingredients

  • 1 lb shrimp peeled fresh or frozen We use the small frozen ones
  • 4 large ramps chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic sliced
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning mix
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 small pkg Angel hair pasta cooked

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet over a medium-high heat saute the garlic in the butter and olive oil until the garlic caramelizes. 

  2. Add in the white wine (or broth) bring to a boil and then reduce to medium heat. Cook uncovered for a few minutes until the wine/broth reduces.
  3. Add the shrimp, ramps, and Italian seasonings saute on medium heat stirring often until shrimp is a nice pinkish color. About 2 to 3 minutes. Do Not overcook the shrimp. It makes them hard and chewy

  4. When the shrimp is done add the COOKED angel hair pasta to the skillet, squeeze the lemon over the top and toss. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

  • For traditional shrimp scampi replace the ramps with parsley.
  • We would serve this with a couple sliced lemons and parmesan cheese on the side, a balsamic salad, and homemade garlic bread. 
  • This is an easy fast weeknight recipe but it is also a nice date night meal.
