One Skillet Shrimp Scampi This is a great weeknight meal!

The whole thing can be prepared in a reasonable amount of time and all done in ONE skillet.

Yes, that’s right…….Shrimp…………Sauce………….and even the Pasta!

All cooked in one skillet.

Best part of that is there’s only one pan to clean when dinners done.

I have to say, that’s huge for me.

No giant pasta pot, colander and then skillet as well to wash up!

Super Yay!

All of the housekeeping aside, this is a really yummy recipe.

We all loved it.

The shrimp was nicely cooked.

I adored the shape of pasta that was selected for the dish and the sauce was really, really delish!

My son was throwing elbows to make sure he got a second helping!

So, let’s talk about the amount of garlic in the recipe.

It seems like a lot and honestly, it is!

The thing is that most of the garlic is cooked for a significant amount of time, so it really mellows it out.

Only 2 of the 11 cloves are added toward the end of the recipe and remain a bit more pungent.

Not at all in a negative way.

It’s what gives the dish its signature garlic flavor.

Recipe Notes: 

The one thing I will change next time I make this is the type of shrimp I use.

I absolutely hate having to stop and cut off the shrimp tails in a dish like this.

I’ll just buy them without tails next time.

It’s a little thing, but frankly, I think it makes a big impact on how you experience the overall dish.

What do you think?

This definitely needed a bit of salt and pepper to my taste so make sure you taste the dish at the end and adjust it to your liking.

I also like my scampi just a bit more lemony.

The rest of the fam though it was absolutely perfect just as it is written.

I think it’s perfect served with a few lemon wedges for peeps like me who love their lemon.
