31 Jul At Home Cavatelli Shrimp Scampi

Yield: 1 Portion


  • 7 oz Cooked Cavatelli Pasta
  • 7 each extra jumbo shrimp
  • 2 oz halved grape tomatoes
  • 1.5 oz chopped fresh garlic
  • 6 fl oz favorite white wine
  • 3 oz butter cold and cut into cubes
  • 1 each lemon
  • .5 oz arugula
  • 1 oz rosemary garlic parmesan bread crumbs( you can just crush our favorite croutons if you’d like)
  • 2 fl oz olive oil

Start by placing a medium size saute pan over high heat.  Pour in the olive oil and and allow to heat for several seconds.  Once the oil is just barely smoking add the shrimp.  Once the shrimp are turning pink on one side add the cherry tomatoes and garlic.  The garlic should cook until it is beginning to change color but not fully brown.  Flip the shrimp over and add the white wine.  Toss in the cooked pasta and allow it to cook and the wine to reduce by half.  Now reduce the heat and add the butter and lemon juice.  Swirl the pan by tilted it in a circular motion with your wrist so that it emulsifies.  Add the arugula and toss gently.  Taste the sauce and season with salt and pepper.  Spoon the scampi into the serving bowl and top it with garlic parmesan bread crumbs.
