    Pomtini's Note:

    (From Everyday Food) Scampi minus the butter and wine. Keep a bag of frozen (raw) shrimp in the freezer and you can have a quick and easy weekday meal on hand. (It just takes a few minutes to quick thaw the shrimp, follow the directions on the bag.) I always have a jar of minced garlic in the fridge and I often sub bottled lemon juice for fresh. I serve with steamed broccoli and a salad. You could also serve with a side of pasta, rice, or garlic bread.

      This recipe is excellent. I couldn't believe how fast dinner was on the table. It was quick and very easy to prepare. The shrimp were perfectly cooked and very flavorful. I used the red pepper flake option adding about 3/4 tsp of pepper. Served it on simple egg noodles, with butter, parmesan and peas. Thank you for sharing your recipe that we will enjoy again and again.

      An excellent alternative to the butter-filled typical scampi, and the flavor was still yummy! The only change I made was to add a couple more cloves of garlic. I will definitely make this again! I made this for Spring PAC 2010, thanks!
