 Ingredients List

  • 1 Stick of butter
  • 1 16oz bottle of white
  • Cooking wine
  • -(I use Holland House)
  • Garlic powder/salt
  • Garlic clove
  • 1 lb Of shrimp
  • 1 2 pounds thin spagetti
  • -(#11 or angel hair is
  • -good)
  • (Lemon juice)
  • (Whatever I have lying
  • -around)


The recipe is from my father, and it's one of the best things he's ever
done for me. A warning. This whole recipe is an old family recipe (tm)
and the amounts are approximations. I just kinda stand over the saucepan
and keep adding garlic, salt, pepper, garlic, gralic, the whole time. So
take the recipe with a grain of salt, and lots of garlic.

Melt the stick of butter in a deep saucepan over low heat. Add 3/4 of
the cooking wine. Drop in a few (what are the sections of the clove
called?) in, as well as garlic powder, salt and pepper. The
whatever-I-have-lying-around part is there because I happened to have some
oregano last time I made this, so I threw it in, and it was pretty good.
And the phrase my father uses is "You can never have too much garlic [in
this recipe]", so go crazy. Once this mixture comes to a boil, pour in a
cup of water and add the shrimp. You may want to fish out the chunks 'o
garlic before you do this, so someone doesn't think it's shrimp. Now bring
to a boil again, and pour over spagetti. You want the spagetti au denti so
it doesn't become au soggy once you pour the scampi over it.

The reason the lemon juice is in () is because when I first got the recipe,
my father forgot to tell me about it. I have become accustomed to it
without, but the weak of heart may add lemon juice to calm the garlic and
butter down, or use cooking wine with lemon added. Good luck!
