I am giving you a standing ovation for this recipe. I've never cooked shrimp before and had the craving for shrimp scampi so I decided to be brave and try this. It was super easy to make and tastes like heaven. My husband has requested that I make this frequently for him. Now I don't have to go out for shrimp scampi anymore. Thanks Taylor!!!!
Just made it and barely breathed while eating it, sort of just inhaled it! An excellent sauce, I used a lite virgin olive oil and about 1/2 the butter to preserve my girlish figure! It did not take away anything from the flavor. Thanks, shrimp scampi in restaurants is oftentimes greasy, but the combination of the wine, butter, and garlic olive oil really made a great sauce. I can see it over angel hair pasta with a crusty french loaf - Thanks, another excellent indulgence!!
Yum, thanks for this! I am on my second bowl of this dish as I type this review. I had to substitute margarine and chicken stock for butter and wine, respectively, but it came together wonderfully all the same. At the end of cooking, I added some fettuccine noodles, al dente, to help the flavors meld. Here's a helpful hint: before you dig in, allow the dish to sit for a few minutes. You won't believe how rich the flavor becomes!
This was fantastic. I bought some spinach linguine at Meijer and poured it over. I didn't have any dry white wine so I used 1/3 Zesty Italian Dressing instead. My husband said it was the best ever and my son said it was awesome. My 2 daughters felt as if there wasn't enough. So, it's now a family favorite
