Ingredients

  • SeaPak Shrimp & Seafood Co. Shrimp Scampi
  • 1 pkg linguine
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes
  • 5 green onions
  • 1 tbs olive oil

Instructions

  1. Chop the green onions separating the darker green stem from the lighter green/white part.
  2. Heat water in a large pot to boil the pasta. Add the pasta once ready - it takes about the same amount of time to cook the pasta as it does to cook the shrimp scampi.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the light green/white part of the onion. Saute for just a couple of minutes.
  4. Add the SeaPak Shrimp Scampi in a single layer and prepare according to package instructions. Add the tomato while the shrimp is cooking and continue stirring occasionally until the shrimp is heated through and the tomatoes softened.
  5. Once the pasta is cooked, at to the pan with the shrimp scampi and toss to combine.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recommends that people eat at least two servings of seafood each week. However, the average American consumes less than one serving a week meaning that, to meet recommended consumption, we, as a nation, need to double our seafood intake.

“One of my favorite “fancy dinners” growing up was Shrimp Scampi. I loved shrimp pasta with hunks of crusty bread (or dinner rolls) for cleaning the plate when I was done.
It was my go-to dinner when my family would go out to eat because it seemed like such a decadent meal. When I started cooking on my own with https://culinarylabschool.com/becoming-a-chef/, I was pretty intimidated to make it at home….until I actually did it. BOY, was it so easy AND QUICK!”
