Like all shrimp dishes, this doesn’t take very long to cook. This one dovetailed well with the cook time needed to make the pasta and the baking time (and temp) needed to roast asparagus. I think it would have more depth of flavor if there were a sauté step for the garlic and shallots – and I may try that next time, using an oven-safe skillet – but it was very, very good as I made it here.


Baked Shrimp Scampi

Serves 4

1 lb. raw shrimp, peeled and deveined; tails removed (I used large shrimp, 31/40 per lb.)
2 tbsp olive oil, divided
1 tbsp dry white wine
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 Roma tomato (4 1/2 oz), chopped
1 shallot (2 oz), finely chopped
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp rosemary
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper
1/2 tsp kosher salt

Preheat oven to 425. In a glass baking dish, toss shrimp with 1 tbsp olive oil and the white wine. Allow to stand 10 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare side dish and boil water for the pasta. In medium bowl. combine garlic, tomato, shallot, lemon juice, seasonings, and 1 tbsp olive oil. After the shrimp has marinated 10 minutes, spoon tomato mixture over top of the shrimp. Bake 12 minutes while the pasta cooks.
