Old Bay Spicy Shrimp Scampi

Old Bay Spicy Shrimp Scampi created by Jonathan Melendez

This recipe originally came from McCormick. The dried herb McCormick's version is pratically perfect but recently, I tried substituting fresh herbs for the dried version and it was amazing. My children don't like shrimp, but they love the pasta tossed in the sauce from this dish. I've substituted chicken for the shrimp also which they love.

    Has anyone tried this with zucchini 'pasta'? If so, did you season it any differently?

    We really like this! I followed some other reviewers suggestions and used 1/2 of the Old Bay spice - other than that, followed the recipe very closely. Used whole grain Angel Hair pasta, and added cayenne pepper at the table to spice it up a little more. My wife thought that maybe it could use a vegetable of some kind mixed in - broccoli florets perhaps? Also might try it next time with all the Old Bay spice just to see how it changes. At any rate, we all like it!

    Most scampi recipes are so heavy in butter sauces and so I liked that this was a in a lighter sauce. The lemon and old bay flavors were perfect together.
