How do you make your shrimp scampi?

I like to devein and peel my shrimp, but most people cook it in the shell. I don’t like to work that hard once it gets to my plate! So here’s my recipe:

Shrimp Scampi with Fettuccini

2 pounds jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup Lite Italian dressing

place peeled shrimp in a bowl, add dressing and stir to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
¼ tsp salt
Black pepper to taste (I like a lot)
½ tsp Worchestershire sauce
I Tbsp. Olive oil

½ cup Half and Half
Cooked fettuccine


Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add onion and garlic, sauté for about a minute over medium-low heat. Add the shrimp, including the Italian dressing marinade, and sauté over medium heat until shrimp are pink – 3-5 minutes. Add salt and pepper, Worchestershire sauce and Half and Half and heat until sauce just begins to form large, glossy bubbles.

Drain fettuccine and pour into large bowl. Add the shrimp mixture and toss. I like to add broccoli florets or asparagus to the mix as well.

Edit! I have been gently reminded that "sauté over medium-low heat" is a contradictory phrase. Sauté, by definition, is to cook over high heat. Do not cook your onions on high heat, they will get crispy. Thanks Kepa!!

I have never cooked shrimp....that looks so good!

Today I made a very simple Chicken Puttanesca Pizza with a premade pizza crust. I didn't care for the crust though, I'll have to make one next time.

Hey! Puttanesca! Just happens to be what I'm making at the moment. Sorry about the pizza crust. But there is nothing like homemade Or bought from a really good pizzeria I suppose (I've never done that, but I heard you can).

Right, so, yeah, making a puttanesca sauce at the moment (garlic, anchovies, canned tomatoes, dried oregano, capers, black olives, swig of red wine vinegar). Then I'm going to flake in some canned tuna, some frozen peas, and serve it over some conchiglie.


*edit*
Ah, that was nice.

If you can find a used copy of The Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Cookbook it is well worth the small investment. The fettuccine recipe isn't from that book, I kind of made that one up as I was going along, but I've made several dishes from Bubba's book.

My last meal...

A couple days ago, I simmered down a chicken carcass, tons of veggies and some herbs from my garden for about five hours into a great chicken broth which I strained and froze.

Today, I created a slam-bang chicken noodle soup for lunch... fresh broccoli, chicken breast, carrots, fresh herbs, barley, rotini. All simmered in homemade chicken broth.

Mmmmm-mmmm.

Yesterday I baked cookies! Chocolate chip, chocolate, sugar reindeer and oatmeal chip. They are packed in tins on their way to Christmasy homes. Tomorrow I'm making peanut butter fudge for a friend. : )

Casarecce with Tilapia in a Spinach Mushroom Alfredo Sauce.
It turned out nicely. I'm always worried when I have to figure out meals with the wierd things I have in my fridge.

Excellent. That is one of the staples in our home. You can almost always find a bag or two of chicken or turkey stock in my freezer.

I just got a KitchenAid stand mixer, so this week I've made two chocolate pecan pies, one pumpkin pie, and a shepherd's pie. I also made fresh whipped cream, but that doesn't necessarily count as cooking. :]

...Apparently, I like pie.

I really can't believe it took me so long to get around to making some.

I received one of those as a wedding gift...it's so pretty! I have been wanting to make bread with it but I'm too scared to try.[/honest] We're actually out of bread as of today so maybe I should try that....

Yesterday we had oven-baked potato wedges and sandwiches. I'm trying to use up foods I have so we don't have to grocery shop...
