For this shrimp scampi recipes you are going to need the following items. First, you definitely need shrimp.

You are also going to need some white wine, a few lemons, and a lot of butter to make the shrimp scampi sauce. You are also going to need some pasta: thin spaghetti or small linguine will work just fine. You are also going to want some yellow bell pepper to throw in the mix.
First, chop up the bell pepper into thin strips (julienne) and throw them into a pan with the shrimp. Add the white wine, and allow the shrimp and peppers to simmer in the wine (do not add too much or your shrimp will overcook) until the wine burns off. While this is happening (it will take a few minutes for this shrimp scampi recipes) boil your pasta.
Once the wine is burned off add the pasta into the pan with your desired amount of shrimp and peppers per serving. Add a healthy amount of butter and lemon juice and sauté, tossing it until it is hot all the way through. Plate it and serve. Take some time to enjoy the shrimp scampi recipes you just made!
