Pamilyn:  Saute` it with a little garlic and white wine and serve over rice, sprinkle some fresh parsley on top.  The best and simple!

Saute it in butter with fresh corn kernels - after 3-5 minutes add chopped scallions and basil -- yum -- I've had this twice in the last week.


Whatever you decide -- enjoy!

I'm sure it's probably too late for tonight, but this is a real favorite at our house.  It goes great with candlelight too!

Linguine with Shrimp Scampi (Serves 6)

Vegetable oil
Kosher salt
1 1/2 pounds linguine
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
5 T. olive oil
3 T. minced garlic
2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
Grated zest of 1 lemon
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes

Drizzle some oil in a large pot of boiling salted water, add 1 tablespoon of salt and the linguine, and cook for 7 to 10 minutes, or according to the directions on the package.

Meanwhile, in another large, heavy-bottomed pan, melt the butter and olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the garlic. Saute for 1 minute (it can burn easily).  Add the shrimp, 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt, and the pepper and saute until the shrimp have just turned pink, about 5 minutes, stirring often. Remove from the heat, add the parsley, lemon zest, lemon juice, and red pepper flakes. Toss to combine.

When the pasta is done, drain the cooked linguine and then put it back in the pot. Immediately add the shrimp and sauce, toss well, and serve.
