I was really expecting to love this recipe, but it was lacking. It really didn't have much flavor. It was like...boiled in butter shrimp. The herbs never came through. I had plenty of leftovers the next day which I added lots of pepper and tabasco and served over a salad and it was much better. I may try this again minus the pouch and grill it instead.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat grill to medium heat and leave covered.
  2. Mix soft butter in a bowl with all ingredients except shrimp. Set aside.
  3. Make Foil Pouch.
  4. Smear butter in the center of the rectangle, arrange half of shrimp in a single layer and distribute a little more butter over top of shrimp.
  5. Place foil packages in center of grill, cover grill and cook for 6 to 7 minutes, or until pouches have puffed up.
  6. Serve immediately. Slice pouches open, spoon scampi onto a plate or serve right in pouch.
