As I mentioned Wednesday I recently harvested my garlic scapes. Although I froze most of the garlic scape pesto I made, I used some of the scapes to make Garlic Scape Scampi. The combination of the garlic and shrimp was delicious!
The ingredients were simple; I had everything on hand except the shrimp.
Garlic Scape Scampi
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp butter
1 pinch of red chili flakes
½ pound shrimp, shelled and deveined
½ cup white wine
½ lemon juiced
¼ cup garlic scapes, chopped
1 Tbsp butter
Heat the oil and melt the butter in a large pan. Add the red pepper flakes and sauté until fragrant. Add the shrimp and sauté until cooked, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove the shrimp form the pan.
Add the wine, garlic scapes and lemon juice to the pan and bring to a boil Simmer the liquid until reduced by about half.
Add butter, wait until it melts and turn off the heat. Add shrimp, stir and serve over pasta.
