Lighter Shrimp Scampi

Lighter Shrimp Scampi created by Baby Kato

(From Everyday Food) Scampi minus the butter and wine. Keep a bag of frozen (raw) shrimp in the freezer and you can have a quick and easy weekday meal on hand. (It just takes a few minutes to quick thaw the shrimp, follow the directions on the bag.) I always have a jar of minced garlic in the fridge and I often sub bottled lemon juice for fresh. I serve with steamed broccoli and a salad. You could also serve with a side of pasta, rice, or garlic bread.

  • Broil 3-4 minutes, until opaque throughout. Sprinkle with lemon juice, toss to combine. Serve immediately.

    Excellent recipe. I have added some parsley to it also, while marinating the shrimp in the mixture. I also placed the shrimp on skewers (going through the head and the tail, and grilling them. After I took them off the grill I had a small amount of melted butter I drizzled them with...Just a little for the flavor!
