Spicy Shrimp Scampi: fingerlicking good shrimp in spicy-saucy garlick and herb-infused buttery-wine sauce.
Ready in 10 minutes, this is your ultimate dinner recipe that can be served with spaghetti, rice or bread.
This Spicy Shrimp Scampi is one recipe that we can eat almost 2-3 times a week as it’s so incredibly easy to make and packed with flavors that will blow your mind.
The trio of garlic, chili, and herbs in this buttery-wine sauce is literally something you need to try as it’s a perfect Umami flavor that you were searching for!
In simple words – it’s Marvellous !!!
I’ve always been a fan of the traditional Shrimp Scampi but my spice-loving family always craved a slightly spicy touch to it.
And we always felt that there should be some extra ‘buttery wine’ sauce to enjoy by the end or just a tad bit more to :
” coat the spaghetti or dip that piece of bread in that rich buttery sauce and taste the umami flavors”
So I decided to create this quick variation to the traditional dish and added:
Sambal Paste + Chili Flakes –> For the kick of spice + that gorgeous orange-gold color
Extra Amount of Dry White Wine –> for that buttery sauce in the end to devour
I also love serving it with a fried rice with Italian seasoning and a mix of peas-beans.
So go ahead and enjoy this combination of Spicy Shrimp Scampi and fried rice or you can serve them with your spaghetti or bread.
