Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare pasta according to package directions and keep warm.
  2. Saute garlic in butter and wine and water until tender. Add pepper, salt and parsley. Allow to simmer and let the sauce reduce a bit.
  3. Add shrimp and heat through. Serve over your favorite pasta. Also good is some bread to mop up the garlic butter left on your plate. Yum!

I was surprised at how good this actually turned out. My personal adjustments: I cut it down to one serving and used white grape juice in place of the white wine and water. Added crushed red pepper flakes and lemon. I forgot to toss the shrimp into the sauce before combining it with angel hair pasta, so heated the shrimp in the sauce that was clinging to the pot. I used parmesan cheese on top. It was so yummy. Thanks Kimberly D.

We really liked this. I did use only half the butter and skipped the water. I don't like my scampi dripping with butter. This way, I just got the flavor. I also added some lemon juice. Thanks for a quick & easy recipe.

I doubled this and there was too much liquid. I think I would leave the water out altogether and use less butter next time. I think a more intense concentration of the flavors was what I was expecting. I added lemon juice, oregano and some red pepper flakes. I also served it with Parmesan cheese at the table. Thanks!
