Summertime appetizers galore are happening’ in my kitchen these days. Loving these crunchy shrimps with zhoug sauce. You can serve just like this as an appetizer or make it a meal by stirring the zhoug sauce all over the crunchy shrimp and mixing with your favorite greens and some rice. um YUM.

This is a simple marinade and dredge of just flour, no breading so it’s super simple to make with most likely ingredients already in your pantry.

Sake Shrimp Scampi

Sake Shrimp Scampi

Buttery, garlicky goodness is this shrimp scampi! with a twist: SAKE instead of white wine. It adds a little bit of a sweeter touch but still tastes like the scampi we know and love.

The reason I swapped sake for it was because I initially got everything to test it out, right? and I thought I had white wine at home! Turns out I didn’t, the closest thing I had to it was SAKE so I decided to try it out - and it worked SO well! So here we are: SAKE SHRIMP SCAMPI!

Definitely eat this with some toasted bread or you can mix with some pasta. YUM.

Sake Shrimp Scampi

Ingredients

  • 1 lb shrimp

  • 6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

  • ½ stick butter

  • juice of one lemon

  • 3 tablespoons Filippo Berio Delicato Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes

  • 1/4th cup sake

  • Parsley to garnish at the end

Directions

Begin by marinating your shrimp with olive oil, salt, pepper and 1/2 of your sliced garlic cloves for about 30 minutes.

Next, heat a skillet with a drizzle of olive oil and cook the shrimp 1-2 minutes on each side until they become pink (at this point, remove them and you don’t want them fully cooked).

In the same skillet, add more olive oil, the rest of your garlic, red pepper flakes and let it sauté for 1-2 minutes. Next add your butter, sake and lemon juice. Let the butter melt, your sake reduce and let those flavors come together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Add your shrimp back in and toss to coat. Serve and top with parsley! #filippoberio
