Shrimp Scampi Linguine

As a bustling seafood lover, I find myself constantly trying to prepare restaurant-quality meals on the clock. Fortunately, I've compiled a few dishes that are as quick and easy as they are delicious kept under my latest category "Under 30". Where we'll create flavorful dishes in under 30 minutes.

While researching the origin of this dish, I found it quite interesting that "scampi" are actually petite crustaceans, reminiscent of lobsters with rosy shells. In Italy, they are often cooked in a gentle simmer of olive oil, garlic, onion and white wine. However, as this dish travelled throughout the North, the scampi was exchanged for shrimp ⁠— while the tiny shellfish remained in the name.

Tender shrimp, butter, garlic and lemon. A unique yet subtle pairing of flavors that impart depth upon a bed of al dente linguine.
