🥘 How To Make Gordon Ramsay Shrimp Scampi

  1. Pour some water into a large pot (at least 4 quarts in capacity). Sprinkle in a lot of salt, seal the pot, and bring to a boil.
  2. Put one tablespoon of olive oil into a medium nonstick saute pan and heat it over medium heat.
  3. When the pan is heated, add the shallots and garlic (both diced and grated) and sauté for 2 minutes to soften the shallots and garlic.
  4. Cook the white wine in the pan until it has nearly completely evaporated to deglaze the pan.
  5. Put in the fish stock, pepper flakes, capers, cherry tomatoes, and lemons (both zested and juiced).
  6. Put the raw shrimp in a bowl, season with salt and pepper, and poach in the sauce for approximately a minute on each side.
  7. Melt the butter by adding the cubes.
  8. Adjust the sauce’s seasonings according to your taste.
  9. While waiting for the water to boil, add the pasta and gently press it into the flavorful water with tongs or a fork as it begins to soften.
  10. Boil the pasta for three to five minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, or until al dente.
  11. Quickly toss the drained pasta into the pan with the scampi sauce and cooked shrimp. Toss the pasta with the sauce so that it is well coated.
  12. Once the spaghetti has been plated, tear some fresh basil leaves and toss them in.
  13. Serve the pasta in a medium-sized bowl that has a little bit of height. Sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan.

💭 Recipe Tips

  • The recipe will taste better if you use fresh ingredients such as shrimp, garlic, and cherry tomatoes.
  • To keep the shrimp delicate and juicy, the cooking time for a poached shrimp dish should be no longer than it takes for the shrimp to become pink.
  • Reduce or increase the number of chili flakes in the dish to achieve the desired level of heat.
  • Swiftly combine drained pasta with the sauce and shrimp to avoid sticking and maximize flavor absorption.
