To get the most flavor in this shrimp scampi, we use vermouth instead of white wine, and a mix of fragrant herbs—parsley, tarragon, and chives—instead of just parsley. The silky butter sauce, meanwhile, is brightened with a splash of fresh lemon juice and fresh lemon zest. It's a quick, easy, one-pot Italian-American classic with just enough extra flavor and flair to make it special.
Hot and Sour soup with cabbage: Bring 8 cups chicken stock to boil with 2 tablespoons each minced garlic and ginger.

Cook 3 or 4 minutes. Garnish: Cilantro, scallions.
