I made this recipe using small scallops in place of shrimp and added in some dried chili flakes for heat, I think the wine needs to be reduced slightly as it overpowered the ingredients a little, I will reduce by 1/4 cup next time, also I increased the garlic to 2 tablespoons, my DS enjoyed this with crusty bread, thanks for sharing Kel!...Kitten:)
Family loved this recipe. My 2 cents: this recipe does come out with a lot of juice and what I did was drain all the juice into a pan and reduce it until the liquid thickened up and added back to the shrimp! This made the dish soooo delicious!
I don't cook much but wanted to make a special dinner so I found this recipe that looked really easy. I did alter it a little based on what I had on supply.. I used under 2 lbs shrimp and I substituted fresh garlic for 1 Tbs olive oil with garlic in it. I didn't use white wine (not b/c I didn't have it but I wasn't going to use it all up in the recipe) ;) 1/2 cup butter 1 Tbs lemon juice 1Tbs parm cheese like you use with spagetti, I used tsp salt and sprinkled dried parsley. I melted all the ingredients and then poured over my shrimp in the baking dished. Watching it cook and turn pink I pulled it out as it was bubbling and it was perfectly done. We noticed it needed a little kick. Maybe the wine would have given it that needed kick but a dash of black pepper worked just fine. My special people loved it!
This was a really easy weeknight dinner. Made with multigrain angel-hair pasta. To the garlic butter mix, added extra garlic, 1/2 a left-over garden tomato minced, 4 pieces leftover bacon, some fresh chopped basil, and a sprinkling of Old Bay Seasoning. Topped with a bit of fresh Parmesan and fresh garlic bread. Yummy and quick.
This is the only way I make scampi anymore! The only changes I make are to add a teaspoon of Bahama Mamma crab seasoning in place of the salt and probably double the lemon juice and garlic. I some times do half shrimp and half scallops for a change of pace.
Excellent! Love scampi so this was a winner, though I did decrease the butter. Easy to modify for one person. Served it over angel hair. Lovely! Thanks KelBel.
Had some shrimp in the the freezer that needed to be used up, so I decided to try this recipe. It had to be one of the quickest dinners I've ever put on the table! DH loved it and said it's definitely a "make again." The only change I made was to use light butter instead of regular. Served over Barilla Plus angel hair pasta. Thanks!
This is an excellant recipe KelBel, its quick and easy to throw together and it tastes out of this world. I used a good quality white german wine, meyer lemon and elephant garlic. The shrimp were perfectly flavoured and cooked. I served this with simple long grain rice, it was delicious. Thank you so much for a dish that even my picky dh enjoyed.
Easy, and very delicious! I used Emerils' Frozen shrimp-they are wild-caught, which really makes a difference in flavor. A little extra garlic, because BF loves it! Served over linguini with freshly grated Paremesan/Reggiano cheese. Truly restruant quality!!
