Top-ranked recipe named "Shrimp Scampi Cilantro"
Attractive and tasty variation on the traditional Shrimp Scampi.
"This was DELICIOUS! Instant replacement for my old scampi recipe.
I used white cooking wine in place of vermouth, and some finely diced red onion for scallions. Didn't have angel hair pasta either, but it was wonderful over some spinach flavored linguine.
I also added some diced cherry tomatoes for a garnish, and it was a beautiful presentation."
Heat butter and olive oil in a large skillet. Add scallions, garlic, and shrimp. Saute until shrimp just turn pink. Add vermouth, cilantro, and lemon juice and heat through. Serve over angel hair pasta and top with freshly grated parmesan or romano cheese.
Nice variation on the traditional scampi.
pols005 1 month agoI don't like shrimp so I actually substituted fake crab. Yum! I did add some salt and fresh cracked pepper also.

skroseberg 6 months agoWow is this delicious! I encourage everyone who likes shrimp to try this. I started with precooked shrimp. One of the best dishes I've ever made.
magcurlee 8 months agoLoved it!!! It's so creamy and yummy. And a little dash of pepper doesn't take away from the flavor.
