Sicilian Scampi (olive Garden Style)

"Sauted shrimp in a garlic/onion butter and white wine sauce, poured over crunchy bread with olives, green onions and tomatoes to garnish. Who wouldn't like it? It's my brother's favorite item at the Olive Garden, I've never had it but fooling around in the kitchen he said it was very close to the actual thing. I like it, so yay me! I guess this clarifies as a copycat. I plan this as the main dish of a meal, but it normally is an appetizer."

directions

  • Cut the loaf of bread on an angle, half an inch thick, at least 35 slices.
  • Arrange 5 slices on serving plates so they face in like flower petals.
  • (You can toast the slices if you like) Heat the butter in a large skillet until it's bubbling lightly.
  • Add the garlic and the WHITE of the onions and cook for a minute.
  • Add shrimp and cook until it's just done.
  • Place a piece of shrimp on the bread closest to the center of the circle, any extra I put in the space left in the center.
  • Add the wine and olives to the remaining garlic butter in the skillet and cook until it's lightly boiling.
  • About 2 minutes.
  • Spoon sauce over the shrimp and bread.
  • Garnish with the tomatoes and the GREEN of the green onions.
  • Serve with napkins and eat with your fingers.

    Loved it! I've made this twice and made no changes. In your recipe you gave a choice of toasted or untoasted. I like it slightly toasted at 350 for about 5 minutes. Again great recipe.

    So Good! I order this every time I go to Olive Garden, the only thing is that the sauce could be thicker... maybe add a little flour or cornstarch? Yumm

    We often eat at the Olive Garden, and my favorite is the sicilian scampi...YOU Nailed this!!! I didnt change a thing, only added fresh ground black pepper to the final display, and it was as close to olive garden's as it could be... I made it at home for the kids..it didnt last 5 min (3 teenagers) and was a huge hit! Kudos to you we'll be making this on weekends when the kids are all here... THANKS!
