Shrimp Scampi

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh shrimp, shelled and deveined without tails
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons white wine
  • 2 tablespoons brandy

Preparation
In a small bowl, combine flour, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Mix thoroughly. Dredge shrimp in flour mixture.

In a large skillet, sauté dredged shrimp in olive oil for 5 minutes over high heat. Toss shrimp often to prevent burning. Transfer shrimp with a slotted spoon to a serving dish, leaving the oil in the pan.

In the same pan, sauté the garlic, shallot, parsley, and oregano over medium heat for 3 minutes; stirring constantly. Spoon the mixture over the shrimp. Return pan to the heat. Preheat your broiler for medium heat.

Pour the wine and brandy into the skillet and ignite with a match or lighter. When the flames die down, stir to loosen any browned bits on the bottom of the skillet; pour over shrimp.

Place the serving dish of shrimp in a preheated broiler for about 2 minutes.

  1. Steve,
    Need a recipe for Ribs. We do not have great beef ribs in Oregon, mostly baby back pork ribs. Also, Kelly told me about the rib eye steak in the peppercorn sauce and the blue cheese stuffed tenderloin. Love being with your daughter!!! Bill
