Share it:

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."

I don't like shrimp so I actually substituted fake crab. Yum! I did add some salt and fresh cracked pepper also.

Oh my! This was sooo freaking good! Made it tonight for our Valentine's Day dinner and we cleared our plates! I sprinkled a little salt and pepper on the shrimp as they were cooking and used wine and lime juice :)

Wow 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.

Loved it!!! It's so creamy and yummy. And a little dash of pepper doesn't take away from the flavor.
