My husband loves shrimp. He’s Cajun, so that isn’t really a surprise. He keeps bugging me to make crawfish, too. Shellfish and I have something of a torrid past, as one of my earliest memories is getting violently ill at a seafood restaurant. I still have a hard time finding the smell of cooking shrimp appetizing, but I am slowly coming around to the flavor. It’s important to keep an open mind, you know? And this Shrimp Scampi makes it easy.
In fact, it’s my favorite shrimp recipe to date, which is kind of amazing considering how few ingredients are involved and how easy it is to prepare. The recipe is written to be AIP-compliant, but if you aren’t following the autoimmune protocol, feel free to use ghee or butter instead of olive oil, add a pinch of red pepper flakes, and sub white wine for the broth. And I’ve got some good news for you low-FODMAP folks, too:
For Low-FODMAP Shrimp Scampi
- Omit the garlic cloves and use garlic-infused extra virgin olive oil instead of regular olive oil.
You can buy garlic-infused oil or make your own by placing some roughly-chopped garlic cloves in olive oil for 24 hours. Just make sure you strain the oil thoroughly so there aren’t any garlic pieces left in it!
Sides for Shrimp Scampi
- Simple Cauliflower Rice
- Lemon-Pepper Roasted Asparagus
- Mashed Roasted Garlic Sweet Potatoes
- Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower
- Roasted Carrots
- Roasted Beets
- Roasted Autumn Vegetables
- Supermarket Salad
