For the Shrimp Scampi:

  • 1/2 pound linguine
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 pound jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped parsley (extra for garnishing)

For the Garlic-Infused Steak:

  • 1/2 pound NY Strip Steak
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon high-smoke-point oil (avocado, coconut, or canola recommended)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic


  1. Prepare the Linguine: Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil. Add the linguine and cook until al dente, about 7 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Make the Shrimp Scampi: Heat a skillet over medium heat. Melt the butter and olive oil together. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and sauté for about a minute. Add the shrimp, season with salt and pepper, and cook until they turn pink, about 5 minutes. Remove the shrimp to a plate.
  3. Pour in the white wine or chicken broth and lemon juice. Let it bubble for a minute. Turn off the heat, stir in the parsley, and add the linguine and shrimp back in, tossing to combine the flavors.
  4. Cook the Steak: Heat a large cast-iron pan over high heat. Season the steak with salt and pepper and lightly brush with oil. Once the pan is hot, add the steak and sear for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until it reaches your preferred level of doneness. In a separate bowl, combine the butter and minced garlic. Spread the garlic butter over the steak and let it rest for about 5 minutes before slicing (remember to cut against the grain).

Enjoy this luxurious Steak and Shrimp Scampi, a delightful way to savor a restaurant-style meal right in your own kitchen!
