Shrimp Scampi (for the Candida Diet)

1 bag frozen shrimp tails on, thawed
Sea Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 2 tablespoons
1/2 of a medium red onion, finely chopped
1/2 medium shallot finely chopped.
1/2 cup grape tomatoes, quartered
2 tablespoons chopped garlic
1 lemon, zested and juiced, separately
1/2 cup clam juice or seafood stock
2 to 3 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut in small pieces
2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley leaves
2 tablespoons chopped or snipped fresh chives
1 box rice noodles, optional

This is a quick cooking dish so have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go in the pan because you won't have time to wash and chop while it's cooking. If making pasta, start sauce when you drop your pasta in to boil. Cook to al dente

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add extra-virgin olive oil and melt the butter into it.  Add shallots and red onions and cook a minute or 2, stirring constantly, until onions begin to soften.  Add garlic and cook another 30 seconds. Add lemon zest and shrimp and heat shrimp through, another minute or two.  Add clam juice (or broth). Cook about 5 minutes to reduce by 2/3. Add tomatoes and parsley, toss another minute to heat the tomatoes through.  Season liberally with salt and pepper and cover with chives to garnish.
