CHEESCAKE FACTORY SHRIMP SCAMPI
INGREDIENTS:
500-1000 gm.  Fresh Shrimp (Cleaned and Deveined, and Butterflied)
500 gm.  Angel Hair Pasta
1 Diced Tomato
6 -8 Whole Garlic Cloves
1 Shallot (Diced)
1 Pint Heavy Cream
4-5 tbsp. Olive Oil
5 -7 Leaves Fresh Basil
2 tbsp. Parmesan Cheese (Finely Grated)
4-5 tbsp. Parsley

FOR THE SHRIMP:
½ cup Milk
2 tbsp. Parmesan Cheese (Finely Grated)
½ cup All-Purpose Flour
1/4 tsp. Salt
½ tsp Black Pepper (Ground)
1/4 tsp. Cayenne Pepper

PREPARATION:
Pour enough Olive Oil in a large sauce pan to cover the bottom, turn to medium high heat. This is the only pot you'll need for the sauce so it should be big. Soak the Shrimp in Milk and combine the dry ingredients (Four, Cheese, Salt, and Pepper). Coat the Shrimp with the dry ingredients and let them fry in the Olive Oil, About 2 minutes per side until Golden Brown. The Flour that falls off the Shrimp will add great flavor and consistency to the sauce. Add more Oil as necessary, between batches of Shrimp. Dab the Shrimp with a paper towel, cover and set aside on range top to keep warm. Add the Garlic to the Oil, stir for a few minutes, and then turn the heat to medium low. In a separate pot, bring Water to simmer. (For pasta late). Add the Cream, and bring it back to a boil, turn heat to low and simmer for 10 more minutes. While it is simmering Dice your Shallot and Tomato, and Chiffonade your Basil. Now add the Basil, Diced Tomato, and remaining Parmesan Cheese. Stir for a moment then add the fried Shrimp, and remove the pan from heat. The sauce will thicken as it cools. Bring Pasta Pot to a boil and add Angel Hair and cook. To plate it, pour some sauce on a dish and arrange the Shrimp around the bottom (10 or so), then take a ball of the pasta and plate that above the Shrimp.  Garnish with a little parsley. CHEEECAKE FACTORY SHRIMP SCAMPI is ready to serve.
