What we’re gonna do is take a little bit of smoked chipotle chilis, put them in there. [Bob] Right, mmm. [Ed] Okay, I’m gonna put a little bit of balsamic vinegar, give it that acidic flavor. You can use maple syrup, I’m using black walnut syrup that we sell at the market. Oh, at the market. Again, I like that nutty flavor. [Bob] Oh yeah, yeah. Um, some people don’t like it but I love that nutty flavor. Okay, mix that around a little bit, and you can let this cook for ya know, about five minutes or so. [Bob] Okay. What you’re gonna do is, you’re gonna take your favorite whiskey or bourbon, you gotta put that in the sauce. [Bob] There ya go. Okay? So that’s that, put that there. Okay, now from here you’re gonna let her cook for another about ten minutes or so to you know, to render down and reduce a little bit, and that’ll be your finished sauce, on top a your ribs.

Alright, so what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna get some oil and butter in the pan. There you go. Gotta get that sizzle goin’. Ah, butter. Oh, yeah. Gotta put the butter in.

A lot of the produce that you see here we actually grow right at the market. Exactly So Well we got this goin’ here, I’m gonna throw some shallots. Gotta love those shallots Gotta have shallots. Gotta have shallots. Gotta have the garlic. Okay, I made these more like a sliver opposed to a mince. So they’ll get almost like little chips so they have a little texture to them. [Bob] Well then your breath would be… [Ed] Exactly, yeah exactly. Alright, I’m gonna throw a little bit oregano and thyme in it, which is, again that Mediterranean flavor. [Bob] Gosh, you just smell the flavor. Exactly. Now we’re gonna throw our shrimp in. Okay now, lot of folks will argue how long to cook the shrimp, okay. Very quick. Couple minutes, that’s all we wanna do. Is we wanna get ’em just pink. [Bob] Now from sight, is just where they start to turn red. [Ed] When they turn red, that’s what we wanna do. [Bob] Okay. Now instead of using pasta, ’cause a lot of people use pasta for scampis, I’m using zucchini and I spiraled it. Okay, so everything’s nice and fresh. [Bob] Ahh, okay. [Ed] Okay, so we’ll add that in there. [Bob] Oh, neat. [Ed] Okay. [Bob] Now that’s a first. [Ed] Yup. You know, a lot of people went to whole gluten free and stuff like that. [Bob] Yeah. [Ed] So we do that and again you’ll notice it’s all fresh South Carolina grown. Mix that around a little bit. [Bob] Now how long to you usually cook the zucchini. Again, just like shrimp, real quick. Just ’cause it’s real nice and thin. So it’s still gonna be crunchy. Exactly. Okay. I’m gonna throw a little bit more butter in there. Okay. Okay, now I’m gonna throw a little bit, crumble a little bit of feta cheese in there. Wow. Okay. A little bit of lemon zest. Okay. [Ed] Mix it around. [Bob] You know, that zucchini looks just like noodles. [Ed] It does. Alright. [Bob] And there we go, Scampi. Mm. Now it’s gonna be ready to plate. So what we’re gonna do here… put that up on there, like that and then we’re gonna finish it off with a little… Ahh, a little decoration. Little bit more decoration. Gotta have some color on there. Okay, a little bit of lemon zest. Lemon goes great [Bob] Oh yeah. with this. Little bit more feta. Who doesn’t like cheese. Yeah, there you go.
