The Best Shrimp Scampi
Some believe Shrimp Scampi is all about the Sauce. Rubbish! It’s all about the Shrimp, just cooked Scampi style. In fact for me personally, I only use enough Sauce to flavor the shrimp with almost nothing left over. In my opinion, the only reason to have extra sauce is to add it to your Pasta, and that’s fine. I like it that way too. I’m just saying that there’s no need for a bunch of extra sauce that’s more or less going to be wasted once the Shrimp have all been eaten. So I would recommend, if you are going to make extra Scampi Sauce, that you add it to the Pasta. Preferably a thinner noodle like Angel Hair, Vermicelli or Thin Spaghetti. But you decide, it’s your kitchen. I like to use Angel Hair Pasta and toss it with scallions, bell peppers and fresh flat leaf parsley. That’s the proper way to serve Shrimp Scampi!
