Shrimp Scampie (Easy)

Ready in 20 minutes

This is a super easy and super delicious dish. You can also add or substitute scallops.

"Tasty. Although I had to use regular white onions and instead of basil I used mixed veggies (because that's what I had on hand), it came out good. Even better when combined with garlic bread."

Preparation

Fill a medium sauce pan with water, place on stove at high heat and bring to a boil

Remove shells from shrimp

Add pasta to boiling water - Follow the instructions from your pasta container for cooking time

Add olive oil to a large saute pan and preheat on med-low

While the pan is heating:

finely chop the onion, garlic and basil

Add these to the pan and cook for a min or so and then add shrimp

once the shrimp are in add salt and pepper to taste (red pepper for a kick) and sweeze in the juice from the lime (you can also add some lime zest)

the shrimp cook in about 4-5 min so stay on top of it (you will know they are done when they are pink and will be firm when you press on them.

Once the pasta is done (try to match the timing on the box to the rest of the dish) strain it and add it to the saute pan and stir into the other ingredients.

Plate it up hot, add Parmesan cheese to taste and serve!
