About the recipe for Shrimp Scampi with Fettuccine without Wine

The shrimp scampi we all know is a delightful dish, but by adding pasta to it, you’ll have a special plate in front of you. It’s the ideal recipe to make when you get back from work at night and don’t know what to cook faster, or on a weekend day when you don’t feel like staying in the kitchen and need something for lunch. But this to happen, you need to have the necessary ingredients in the fridge. I have added some special herbs to my recipe for shrimp scampi to have a perfect balance between the shrimps and fettuccine pasta. You can also try my other recipe for scampi in which can add wine, also being more simple than this one and cooked faster. Regarding the Fettuccine pasta, prepare them al-dente as I showed you to this article. This is the way Italians cook their pasta for greater results and flavor.

 

The History of Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp Scampi recipe was first mentioned in American cookbooks published in 1920. It was referring to a dish cooked with shrimp that had been sprinkled with olive oil, white wine, garlic, and butter. The Italian scampi recipe gained popularity in the United States after World War II, with the Tenakill restaurant in New Jersey being the first to announce the dish. The first recipe was “born” in Italy, but Americans took it, improved it and added some herbs to boost the flavor.

 

Why using the recipe without wine?

There are various reasons why to cook shrimp scampi with fettuccine without wine. It’s true, the wine adds an original flavor to any ingredient mixture, but some people are not attracted to its particular taste. Therefore, I have replaced the wine with these special herbs to make a tasty recipe that you’ll love. Above, I redirected you to my recipe with wine, but this recipe is for Shrimp Scampi without Wine.

 

Notes and Tips

  1. Essential Equipment: 3-quart saucepan; 10-inch skillet.
  2. If you use fresh fettuccine instead of dried, it will cook much faster. You will need to start the shrimp as soon as the fettuccine begins to cook.
  3. Shrimp is very perishable. Store it uncooked in the refrigerator no longer than 1 to 2 days maximum.
