This recipe made some tasty shrimp. I've always made my scampi in a saute pan, and I think I like the browning you get on the shrimp by that method a tad better. But this was defnitely fast & easy and would be a good alternative if you need some quick garlicky shrimp in a large quantity and don't want to have to do batches in a saute pan. I used pre-cooked shrimp, which sped up the recipe even more. Made for Pick A Chef 2007.
