Franklin Said:how do i make Shrimp Scampi for a special dinner?
We Answered:BROILED SHRIMP SCAMPI & SAUCE
3 lbs. shrimp
1/2 c. bread crumbs
1/2 c. oil
Salt & pepper
Split 3 pounds of deveined shrimp left in shell, leaving tail intact so that it will curl up invitingly on the plate when served. Arrange the shrimp with the split side up in a pan, brush with oil and sprinkle with bread crumbs. Broil for 5 minutes. Arrange the shrimp on a platter, pour hot Scampi sauce on each and serve.
1 clove garlic
1 oz. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 pt. fresh lemon juice
1/2 pt. sherry
1 lb. butter
1 1/2 c. American mustard, yellow
Grind the shallots and the clove of garlic. Add the Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice and sherry. Mix the cup of mustard with butter until smooth and add this to the first mixture. Boil for 5 minutes, with constant stirring. The lemon juice helps preserve this sauce indefinitely in the refrigerator.

Do not add it to the shrimp scampi, serve it on the side.

Samantha Said:What wine should I pair with a shrimp scampi?
We Answered:I'd go with a hearty California Napa Chardonnay, the butteryness of the Chardonnay will match well with the butter of the scampi, and one with nice acidity will complement the shrimp. I'd recommend the Beringer Napa Chardonnay, should run you around $13.00
Jim Said:How to make an awesome shrimp scampi?
We Answered:In your question, you did not say HOW you were making the scampi. The best to way to make scampi is the way it is made in most resturants. You need a hot skillet, fresh butter, white wine, fresh chopped parsley, minced garlic, cracked black pepper and just a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Heat skillet with butter ...be careful not to overheat...your butter will burn. When the butter is nicely melted, add garlic and parsley then about 15 seconds later you add your shrimp. You saute (meaning...stir the pan around over the heat..ya know...like ya see Emril do...) the shrimp when the shrimp begin to turn pink add the dry white wine ...not too much. If you have a gas stove...carefully ...tilt pan to catch the alcohol in the wine on fire. This quickly burns it off without over cooking the shrimp. My guess is that perhaps you are over cooking the shrimp. Hope this helps but please dont do the "hells kitchen" flame game unless you know what you are doing or at least have a lid handy to smother the flames.
