217/365 Shrimp Scampi

This is a quick dinner that I go to when we don't have anything planned. I keep shrimp in the freezer most of the time and the rest of the ingredients are normally on hand.

Shrimp Scampi with Sweet Onions


1 whole sweet (Vidalia) onion (chopped into medium size chunks)
1 whole red pepper (chopped into medium size chunks)
3 whole cloves of garlic
2 tbsp Butter
Olive Oil

Chop onion in to medium size pieces. Saute in pan over medium high heat with butter and add 1 tbsp of Olive Oil. Dice garlic and add to onions. When onions are beginning to be translucent, add chopped red peppers. Add more olive oil if needed.

Stir while it is cooking.

Add shrimp. I normally do 6 medium shrimp per person. Add lemon juice.

Cook until shrimp is done.

Prepare linguine according to directions on box.

Serve shrimp mixture over pasta and crusty bread.
