1 cup garlic cloves

1 1/2 cups 75/25 percent blended oil (olive/canola)

1 tablespoon kosher salt, plus more for serving

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more for serving

1 lemon, zested and juiced 

Crushed red chili flakes

Chopped fresh parsley, for serving 


  1. Pulse the garlic in a food processor in short 1-second bursts. After 3 or 4 times, open the lid and scrape down the sides. Continue to pulse until the garlic is finely minced but not mushy or pureed (this can also be done by hand).
  2. Empty the garlic into a mixing bowl and add the oil, salt, pepper, lemon zest and juice and stir well.
  3. The scampi sauce can be added to many items: try it with French fries, tater tots or chicken wings. When the item of your choice is out of the oven or fryer, add it to a mixing bowl with a few well mixed ladles of scampi sauce and some salt, pepper and chili flakes. Toss well and top generously with chopped fresh parsley.
