This is verbatim from the Betty Crocker Cookbook. I prefer using multiple color onions to give it a little flair, serving it over pasta, and with a green vegetable. Scampi is a term often used in restaurants to describe a dish made with large shrimp that are prepared with garlic, oil or butter, then broiled in a shallow ramekin. This easy version is cooked in a skillet.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel shrimp, removing tails. Make a shallow cut lengthwise down back of each shrimp; wash out vein (devein).
  2. Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Cook shrimp and remaining ingredients except cheese in oil 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently until shrimp are pink and firm; remove from heat. Sprinkle with cheese.
