Shrimp Scampi With Pasta Alfredo

Recipe by Mercy
READY IN: 45mins




  • Marinate the shrimp in the other ingredients until you are ready for them.
  • Thirty minutes before you are ready to serve, start heating the pasta water and place the half-and-half and butter in a large serving bowl to soften (sometimes I nuke it in the microwave for a minute or two).
  • Put a large skillet over high (or medium high) heat to get it really hot.
  • When the pasta is about three minutes away from being done (done=al dente), dump the shrimp and marinade into the hot skillet.
  • Toss the shrimp around as they cook.
  • Once the shrimp are pink and curled-up (about three minutes), remove the skillet from the heat.
  • Drain the pasta and dump it into the serving bowl with the half-and-half and butter.
  • Add the Parmesan cheese, a pinch of salt and a few grinds of black pepper and toss together gently (the residual heat from the pasta melts everything together).
  • Pour the shrimp and sauce over the top and serve immediately.
