Easy shrimp scampi without wine, add pasta and you'll have dinner in less than 30 minutes. A classic shrimp scampi linguine recipe that everyone will love.
Cook pasta according to package directions reserve half a cup of the cooking water, see notes for that.***
Add garlic and sauté with shrimp for another minute until all the shrimp turn pink.
Reduce heat add salt, pepper, lemon juice, shrimp stock, parsley and the reserved half cup of pasta cooking water( if you chose to).
Add cooked pasta to the pot, mix then turn off the heat.
* To make shrimp stock, in a microwave safe bowl, I added the shrimp shells + 3/4 cup water and microwaved for about 2 minutes. Strain and use that water for more added flavor.
** For a more added lemon flavor you can use zest of half or even full lemon according to your preference. I did not add lemon zest as my kids do not like it.
***if you care for more sauce, add half a cup of the cooked pasta water to the pan. The starch in the water will thicken the sauce a bit allowing it to adhere to the pasta more.
