Default Simple Shrimp Scampi

Simple Shrimp Scampi


1 pound jumbo shrimp, shelled and deveined
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/4 cup dry white vermouth
1/4 teaspoon grated lemon zest plus 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon
2 teaspoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves


Put the shrimp on a large disposable pie pan or paper plate and pat them
completely dry with a paper towel. Arrange the shrimp so they lay flat and
are evenly spaced.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Season the shrimp with salt and
pepper. Add the butter to the skillet. When the foaming subsides, raise the
heat to high and invert the plate of shrimp over the skillet so the shrimp
fall into the pan all at once. Cook the shrimp, without moving them, for 1
minute. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Turn the shrimp over and cook
for 2 minutes more. Transfer the shrimp to a bowl.

Return the skillet to the heat and pour in the vermouth and lemon juice.
Boil the liquid until slightly thickened, about 30 seconds. Scrape up any
browned bits from the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Stir the lemon
zest and parsley into the sauce. Pour the sauce over the shrimp, season with
salt and pepper to taste and toss to combine.

Divide the shrimp among plates or arrange on a platter and serve

Normally, I'm not a big fan of shrimp, but with butter, garlic and vermouth, even I would like this!
