Garlic scapes with shrimp is really more of an idea than a recipe. It’s important to cut the scapes off your garlic plants so they can focus on producing a nice bulb, and because they are delicious. We’re coming to end of the season’s 100s of garlic scapes and branched out from using them in much more than pesto and potatoes.
Simply take the last of this year’s garlic scapes with a little olive oil and lemon juice and start sautéing them in your cast iron frying pan. At the farm we just throw the pan on a hot bbq but the stove on medium heat works fine too. After a few minutes throw in your shrimp in the pan and cook them for just a few minutes until they turn pink. They’re perfect and ready in just a few minutes when you need to add protein to a meal.
