"Tastes EXACTLY like the Red Lobster Shrimp Scampi. It's a favorite recipe in our home!!"
Serving Size: 1 (251 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"My wife found the true Red Lobster Shrimp Scampi recipe and this is not it... there is a missing ingredient. A package of ranch dressing mix added to the scampi sauce."
"You certainly put more work into this than Red Lobster! I worked there as a manager about 8 years ago so things might have changed. No butter was ever used. It was butter flavored oleo from a jug, a bit of seasoning and placed in individual metal cooking pans and put in the cooler to be used within 48 hours.<br/>This looks MUCH better."
"I love this recipe. Will definitely use it again and again. It is so easy to make. I even used steamed shrimps. I cut the wine in half and used water instead. Also, do not use California Chardonnay, they taste oakey. I used a Chilean wine."
"I enjoyed this recipe and I prepared it the way that was on the recipe. I found the food to taste like Red Lobster and will fix it again. My husband really enjoyed it and told all my friends about it."
"My husband and I LOVED this recipe! Thanks for sharing it..oh and I used wine and not water and it was fab! (oops sorry didn't rate it)"
"This is so good and easy to make. I did reduce the wine to half and used water instead."
"Great recipe and very easy to adapt. I added a little pre-made pesto to zhoosh it up a bit.I also typically use vermouth instead of white wine; I always have it handy because it does not spoil."
"Great recipe! Didn't have the grated parmesan and used basic Brut white wine and it was very tasty! Also used jumbo shrimp...hubby loved it! Actually tasted better than Red Lobster's...(said so by my hubby :)<br/><br/>This recipe is a keeper!! Yummy!!"
"Its delicious but nothing at all to the red lobster shrimp scampi. Does not remotely taste anything like it.. I would get it made again, but nothing close to it. Even followed the recipe to the dot."
"Have made this recipe several times and my husband and 14 year old daughter both LOVE it as do I. I use a Pinot Grigio instead of Chardonnay and it is delicious. I think it does taste just like Red Lobster's version. Make sure you serve this with some good crusty rolls to soak up all the sauce. It is so good my mouth is watering just thinking about it!"
"It was just okay. Nothing special...I think if you half the wine and use water for the other half it would be better, less acidic. I mean there's already half a lemon in it. Or use a really expensive white wine instead of a typical Cali Chardonnay..."
"I agree with one of the reviewers...the Italian seasoning didn't sound right just reading the recipe so I omitted it from the gate. It tasted real close to Red Lobsters Scampi!! I will be making this for my annual "Sisters Christmas Lunch" this year with pasta, salad, etc. The girls will love it, we shared many of our birthdays at Red Lobster and all usually got their shrimp scampi!"
"Loved this recipe, used chicken broth instead of white wine and it was AAMAAAZINGGG!! Also, instead of Italian seasonings, i used alittle bit of oregano, onion powder and basil. Definitely going to make this a lot more."
"We thought this was a good dish, but definitely not like Red Lobster's shrimp scampi. I think it is the Italian seasoning that is the problem. That adds a very distinct flavor that none of us remember ever tasting in the Red Lobster version. I think if you omit it, it would be a lot closer copycat recipe. The sauce was a little thin, but I'm pretty sure I didn't cook the wine down long enough. We had to leave right after supper, and I had based my start time on the recipe's prep time. It definitely took closer to 30 minutes to cook the shrimp and sauce than the 8 minutes called for. I served it over angel hair pasta with a side salad and the rest of the chardonnay."
"I made this for Good Friday dinner. I had never made shrimp before. But it sounded really good. I made it the first time using Chardonnay and the second (by popular demand) Riesling. SO good!!! I did find that there was a lot of sauce left over but no one complained. Everyone dipped their bread in in. DEFINITELY a keeper! Was fantastic and super easy to make!"
"My husband said he wants to eat this once a week! Lol not happening but will def keep recipe for future use, thanks it was delicious! I had to make a few changes tho, I had no Italian seasoning so I used a bunch of different spices (paprika, Oregano, garlic powder, parsley, pepper, etc) and after it was cooked I sprinkled some Italian breadcrumb seasoning. I also had no white wine so I used water. But I will make again soon with all the correct ingredients :)"
"I would like to prepare this dish exactly like Red Lobster does in individual chaffing dishes. In the receipe seems more steps than the restaurant does. Shrimp would be overcooked. Please help. Thanks!"
"We enjoyed this meal. Can't wait to try it again."
"I made this for dinner tonight, My DH loves scampi and I have tried many recipes, some he liked and most I didn't . I guess I don't like too taste so much lemon....! Anyway, he raved over this one and I enjoyed it too. If I were making this for myself I would cut the lemon down even more, but he and everyone else thought it was perfect.
This is a very easy recipe and was done in no time (even though I burned the garlic bread) !
I will make this my favorite from now on. Thank you.
