Angel Hair Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp is a natural for weeknight dinners since it's quick cooking. Pair the shrimp with a garlic-lemon sauce and serve it over angel hair pasta for a super impressive dish. And don't forget the fried prosciutto, the salty contrast makes this dish pop.

ADD:

If you want, you can leave the tails on the shrimp for pretty presentation — but it has no effect on cooking, so feel free to remove them.

Instructions

Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water according to package directions; drain.

Crisp prosciutto in a sauté pan over medium heat, then transfer to a plate.

Sauté shrimp, garlic, and pepper flakes in 2 Tbsp. oil for 2 minutes; transfer to a plate.

Deglaze pan with wine and lemon juice, scraping up any brown bits, and cook until reduced by half, about 3 minutes.

Add tomatoes, scallions, rosemary, and zest; cook 1 minute. Return shrimp to pan and cook until firm, 1–2 minutes. Add pasta and parsley and toss to combine; season with salt and black pepper.

Serve pasta with shrimp and sauce; drizzle with olive oil. Top servings with prosciutto.

Sauté shrimp quickly, just 1 minute per side so they don't get rubbery — they'll finish cooking later.
