Cooking time

Plump, juicy shrimp couldn’t be better surrounded than by satisfying bucatini, a thick spaghetti-like pasta with a hole running through the centre designed to transport more sauce—and therefore more amazing flavour—to your taste buds. Here the sauce is quick, easy and infinitely gratifying, with flavours of garlic, butter, oven-roasted cherry tomatoes and just-wilted baby greens. And the topping of crunchy breadcrumbs? Masterful.

Roast the cherry tomatoes
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Toss all but a handful of the cherry tomatoes with a drizzle of oil; season with ⅓ of the spice blend and S&P. On a lined sheet pan, arrange in a single, even layer and roast in the oven, 12 to 14 minutes, until the tomatoes have browned and are beginning to burst. Remove from the oven and set aside in a warm spot.

Boil the pasta
While the cherry tomatoes roast, add the pasta to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Cook, 6 to 8 minutes, until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Reserving 1 cup cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain the pasta thoroughly. Toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking and set aside in a warm spot.

Mise en place
While the pasta cooks, halve the reserved cherry tomatoes. Mince the garlic. Finely chop the parsley leaves and stems. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towel and remove the shells from the tails; season with ½ the remaining spice blend and S&P.

Toast the breadcrumbs
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the panko and ½ the garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until the panko is golden brown and the garlic is fragrant; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P to taste. Transfer to a bowl and combine with ½ the parsley. Wipe out and reserve the pan.

Make the shrimp scampi
In the same pan, melt 3 tbsp butter on medium-high (double for 4 portions). Stirring frequently throughout this step, add the remaining garlic and parsley; cook, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the seasoned shrimp*; cook, 1 to 2 min. per side, until opaque and cooked through. Add the roasted cherry tomatoes, demi-glace, ½ the white wine vinegar and the reserved cooking water; season with S&P. Cook, 1 to 2 min., until thickened. Add the cooked pasta and ⅔ of the spinach; cook, 1 to 2 min., until combined.

Make the salad & serve
In a large bowl, combine the remaining vinegar and 3 tbsp olive oil (double for 4 portions); season with S&P to taste. Add the remaining spinach and reserved cherry tomatoes; toss well. Divide the finished shrimp scampi pasta between your plates. Top with the breadcrumbs and serve the salad on the side. Bon appétit!
