Shrimp Scampi

final.jpg2 oz. butter
2 oz. olive oil
0.5 oz. Italian flat leaf parsley, chopped (a handful)
0.3 oz. garlic, pressed (3 cloves)
1/2 lb. uncooked shrimp, shelled, deveined, and cleaned
2.0 oz. fettucini or spaghetti (dry)

Prepare the shrimp.

Bring a pot of water to boil and prepare fettucini (what I normally use) or spaghetti (pictured).

Preheat the broiler.

Finely chop a good handful of Italian flat-leafed parsley.
Heat an ovenproof sauté pan over medium heat. Melt the butter and add olive oil. Add the garlic and cook through but do not brown. Remove from the heat.

Add the shrimp and parsley, toss to coat the shrimp. Put under the broiler for 5 minutes or until the shrimp is fully cooked. Add the cooked and drained noodles and toss to coat the noodles. Salt and pepper to taste.

Serve. Serves one person very generously; scales easily.
