Loved, loved, loved this! The seasonings are classic and perfect but it was the cooking method that particularly impressed me. I generally prepare shrimp this way in a skillet on the stove top, but this was just too easy! What was really kind of cool was that I used three shrimp apiece as an appetizer for our grilled steak dinner using small gratin dishes that looked so pretty on the serving plate along with the steaks! For additional flavor and color I added chopped fresh chives from my garden and sprinkled the shrimp with paprika. I know I'll be repeating this as an easy and delicious appetizer regularly.

A good basic recipe, but bland. I would add lemon juice, white wine, perhaps some Dijon mustard. I had large shrimp on hand, so put in 1 more tbsp of olive oil, 1 more tbsp of butter and 1 additional garlic clove, but still needed a bit more pizzaz; I will make it again the the additions above and see if it has more zing.

Simple and basic, also very good and easy. This is a quick fix meal with some pasta and garlic bread. Can easily change it up by adding white wine or some herbs to get more flavor. Thanks for the post. Read More

My first time ever making Shrimp Scampi. I made this tonight for an appetizer while my dinner was cooking. This was quick, simple and easy. The next time, I will have it as the main course but I will add some fresh parsley, white wine, broccoli, and fresh parmesan cheese, served on top of some pasta along with garlic bread and a side salad. Yummy!!! Read More

Very good I thought the garlic was a bit too strong but otherwise I enjoyed the method and the taste. I added a sprinkle of panko bread crumbs mixed with some fresh parmesan cheese on the top before baking. Made a nice "crust". I'll make it again with a bit less garlic than what's called for.

Very very simple and very very tasty. I did make 2 minor modifications: I added fresh basil from my herb garden and freshly squeezed lemon juice to the marinade. Read More

This was great! The scampi was quick and easy to make AND tastes fantastic. My only additions were: adding approx 1/2c Italian dressing to the marinade for some extra flavor, and topping the shrimp with a mixture of Italian & Panko bread crumbs and a few shakes of parm cheese before baking. While the scampi was in the oven, I boiled some linguine, tossed it in couple Tbsps of butter and garlic salt, add garlic bread, and voila! A quick weeknight meal a la Italian bistro. Read More
