Here's a recipe that I have made several times for our family. Set your broiler and watch the shrimp closely. The shrimp is done when it turns pink. Do not overcook! Serve with baked potato and salad.

I love Scampi and have been sauteing it for years on the stove top. This is soooo much better! I did do it a little different, I added some fresh lemon juice. I broiled the shrimp with the butter, garlic and lemon juice (without the wine) for about 7 minutes until the shrimp and garlic turned a little brown, then added the wine to cook the last 5 minutes. Sprinkled with parley!! yum, yum. The whole family loved it! Read More

I was quite disappointed by this recipe. It came out quite bland. I'd recommend adding parmesan cheese as well as some ground black pepper and most of all salt. Other than that it's not bad. Just don't try this out for the first time when you're trying to impress your guests. Read More

This is the scampi recipe I used -- not the other 12 here on allrecipes. I omitted the wine and doubled the garlic. We went nuts over it. I served it with fettuccine alfredo and spinach sauteed in butter. MMM...AWESOME! Read More

YUM! I followed Shanna12's advice. I added some fresh lemon juice. I broiled the shrimp with the butter garlic (I used 8 cloves not 2)and lemon juice (without the wine) for about 5 minutes until the shrimp and garlic turned slightly brown then added the wine and green onions the last 5 minutes. I would say it took 10-12 minuted total. I used 2 cups of sauvignon and poured the whole thing over the cooked pasta (16 oz linguine or spaghetti) in a big pasta serving bowl. Serve with fresh grated parmasan cheese. SO YUMMY! Read More

in a word: outstanding. with a little lemon peel juice and parmesan(as directed by reviewers) this recipe is superb. I halved the portions(except garlic) as i was only feeding myself and served over orzo rice. Read More

I served this with a green salad and it made a very quick and easy weeknight dinner. Broiling makes a difference - in the past I'd sauteed scampi on the stove too and this tasted more flavorful. I added about a tablespoon of lemon juice and served it over buttered angel hair pasta with some fresh parsley and freshly ground black pepper so the end result was everything tasting very buttery (next time I probably won't add butter to the pasta) still it was very good. Not only does it taste great it looks and smells great too! I will definitely make this again. Read More

excellent recipe-- although I did add 1/4 cup white wine to the butter and 1 tsp lemon juice. (I did it for only one pound of shrimp) I mixed 1 T of the butter mixture with 1/2 cup parmesan and chive seasoned bread crumbs. I sprinkled the bread crumbs on during the final minute of broiling.

My husband is the shrimp connoisseur and he rated this recipe a 10star!! He said he felt like he just ate in a restaurant. I added Lemon&Pepper Salt seasoning extra garlic and parmesan to the shrimp. I served with angel hair pasta and light alfredo sauce. Read More
