Quick and Easy Garlicky Shrimp and Scallops with Artichokes

I purchased some fresh shrimp and scallops earlier during the week and didn’t have an opportunity to prepare them; so last night I had to make sure I cook them before it spoiled. I decided to make a quick and relatively simple meal that I could sit down and enjoy within minutes. After checking my fridge and pantry for ingredients and menu ideas I decided to sauté the shellfish with a little olive oil and garlic.  I didn’t follow any particular recipe but pretty much just combined the ingredients I had on hand by sight and taste.

Try preparing this meal and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me for more details.

I guarantee you will agree that it’s quick and easy to prepare and a relatively inexpensive last minute meal.

Ingredients:

  • Shrimp
  • Scallops
  • Lots of minced garlic or add enough for your taste
  • Shallots
  • Lemon Pepper Olive Oil (my absolute favorite flavored olive oil is made by  Boyajian (http://boyajianinc.com/)
  • Canned artichokes ( I had some leftover in the refrigerator)
  • About one tablespoon of butter for extra flavor
  • Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb Seasoning
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Mushrooms

Directions

  1. Sauté shrimp, scallops, shallots, garlic and artichokes in olive oil and butter
  2. Add mushrooms, and Mrs. Dash (or if you prefer salt/pepper) to taste
  3. Sauté for approximately 8-10 until done but not over cooked. You can always tell when shellfish is done by the way it looks. It usually looks opaque throughout.
  4. As an option you can add some fresh grated parmesan cheese for added flavor
  5. Add your favorite green vegetable for a well-balanced meal (I sautéed some fresh Broccolini)
