A friend dropped by last night with some shrimp that was just caught off of Vancouver Island. I looked for a recipe that would showcase the shrimp and found “Pasta with Shrimp Scampi” at Cooks.com (click here to view recipe). I first heated some olive oil in a pan and sauteed some chopped Jalapeno peppers and garlic. I then added the shrimp which I had peeled and deveined. After cooking the shrimp for a few minutes, I removed the shrimp from the pan and added white wine, dry mustard, Worcestershire sauce and heated for a few minutes. Then I put the shrimp back in the pan with butter, salt, and lemon juice. I tossed some cooked spaghettini with the shrimp mixture and some fresh parsley, and voila, it was ready to eat (see picture below). The shrimp was bursting with flavor and I gobbled everything up, even though the recipe is supposed to feed 4 people!
