Shrimp Scampi Quarantini

It’s about a month into the quarantine here in Atlanta, and I’ll just say one of my favorite things about being home every night, is slowing down to cook dinner. I’ve enjoyed making up my own quick recipes and was quite pleased with this quick dinner I made tonight. Once I realized I had enough ingredients to make a version of shrimp scampi, off I went. This isn’t a precise recipe. Anything goes. Add, take away, make it your own.

Items I found:

  • Box of Spaghetti 
  • Garlic
  • Lemon
  • Kale
  • Shrimp
  • Parmesan cheese 
  • Salt
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Butter
  • Olive oil

How I made it:

  • Boil and salt a big pot of water
  • While waiting for water to boil, pat dry the raw shrimp, and pull the tails off
  • Slice the lemon into thin rounds 
  • Peel and chop some garlic (maybe 5 cloves. The more the better)
  • Wash then chop the kale
  • Boil spaghetti 
  • In a heated pan, pour some olive oil (maybe a TBLSP), let it heat, them sauté the kale with a little salt until tender 
  • In another heated pan, pour some olive oil (maybe a TBLSP) and some butter (maybe 2-3 TBLSP) and cook the shrimp. Add the garlic. Add a pinch of red paper flakes. Then lemon slices. Then the cooked kale. 
  • Drain pasta, and add to the shrimp mixture
  • Top with Parmesan cheese

Easy peasy quarantini.
