Specialty Recipe

Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp Scampi and Broccoli

1-1/4 pounds medium or large shrimp - shelled, deveined if desired, rinsed, and patted dry
3 large garlic cloves, minced
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
6 Tablespoons olive oil
4 to 6 Tablespoons butter, room temperature
1 bunch broccoli (about 1-1/2 pounds), cut in medium flowerets
9 to 10 ounces fresh angel hair pasta or 8 ounces dried

Combine shrimp, garlic, a pinch of salt and pepper, and 4 Tablespoons olive oil in medium bowl. Cover and let marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour or up to 4 hours. Remove shrimp from marinade and reserve marinade. Remove garlic pieces adhering to shrimp with a small rubber spatula and return garlic to marinade.

Put 2 to 4 Tablespoons butter in a large, warm bowl for tossing with pasta. Add broccoli to a large saucepan of enough boiling salt water to cover generously. Cook uncovered over high heat about 5 minutes or until just tender. Drain broccoli well. Return to saucepan. Cover and keep warm.

Meanwhile, heat remaining 2 Tablespoons olive oil and 2 Tablespoons butter over medium-high heat in a large, heavy skillet. Add shrimp and saute, tossing often, 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or until pink on the outside; large shrimp can be white inside when cut. Reserving fat in skillet, transfer shrimp with a slotted spoon to a large bowl. Cut some of larger shrimp into thirds. Cover and keep warm.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add salt, then pasta. Cook, uncovered, over high heat, separating strands occasionally with a fork, about 2 minutes for fresh or about 8 minutes for dried or until tender but firm to the bite. Drain well. Add angel hair to the bowl containing butter pieces and toss well. Add about 2/3 of shrimp and about 1/2 of broccoli flowerets; toss. Add shrimp marinade to skillet used to cook shrimp. Cook over medium heat, stirring, about 1 minute or until garlic is tender but not brown. Immediately pour mixture over pasta and toss until blended. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Mound pasta mixture on a large heated platter and encircle with remaining shrimp and broccoli.

Serves: 4 (main course servings).
