  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oilShrimp Scampi with Garlic Toast
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped
  • Kosher salt
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 8 1/2 inch thick slices crusty bread
  • 1 1/4 pounds large shrimp, peeled and faint, tails intact
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine or low sodium chicken broth
  • Grated zest and juice of one half lemon, plus lemon wedges for serving
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh chives


  1. Preheat the broiler

Add the garlic, 1/2 teaspoons salt and the red pepper flakes and cook 1 to 2 minutes; remove from the heat. Brush both sides of the bread with some of the garlic mixture and arrange on a baking sheet. Broil the bread until toasted, about 1 minute per side. Divide the bread among 4 bowls.
