Shrimp Scampi Pasta
A succulent seafood pasta dish made with shrimp, clam juice and white wine.
very thin or angel hair pasta
medium, peeled and deveined
Bring a large pot of water to a boil for cooking the pasts.
Add salt and pasta and cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until al dente. Drain and return to the pot to keep warm.
While the pasta is cooking, heat the oil and butter in a large skillet.
Add garlic and shallots and sauté for 2 minutes over low heat, stirring often.
Raise heat to medium, add wine, clam juice and pepper and simmer for 2 minutes.
Add shrimp, spreading them evenly over the skillet, and simmer over med-low heat for about 3 min, until cooked through. Stir in parsley.
Taste and add salt if needed. Pour sauce over pasta in the pot.
Toss gently, but thoroughly, then spoon out onto serving plates.
I serve this with pieces of Cuban or French bread to dunk in the sauce.
