Another great recipe from Marguerite Buonopane. Serve this over a thin spaghetti style pasta.


  1. Dust shrimp with flour shaking off the excess.
  2. Heat oil in a heavy skillet, add garlic and shallot, cook over low heat 2 minutes.
  3. Increase heat to medium, add shrimp, salt, pepper, lemon juice and Tabasco and cook 5 minutes.
  4. Add wine and cream, bring mixture to a soft boil and cook 2 minutes.

This was a great base recipe I added Mrs Dash Caribbean Citrus to shrimp and I only had onion and green peppers so I used those and followed the rest exactly. Loved it cant go wrong I will make again soon.

This is a really nice way to do shrimp scampi! I've tried a bunch of shrimp scampi recipes and this is one of the top. The flavor is outstanding. I added a chopped tomato and some parsley just to add a little color and served it over linguini. Only thing I would do differently is to double the sauce. Topped with some fresh greated parmesan cheese.
