How to make Shrimp Scampi with Linguini

Begin by boiling salted water. Place the linguini in the water and cook until al dente.

Meanwhile, in a skillet melt the butter. Add the olive oil, minced garlic, and salt to the skillet. Cook for 1 minute.

Place the shrimp in the skillet and cook until both sides are pink, about 3-4 minutes per side.

Once the shrimp is cooked, stir in the chopped parsley, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper to taste.
