View Full Version : ISO Shrimp Scampi recipe

This may morph into shrimp and scallop scampi if I can get to the store by dinner. :D
Can someone give me a no fail/classic recipe for this? Last one I tried was OK, but not quite what I wanted, too lemony or something (odd, since I love lemon).

I ususally don't follow a recipe, but CL has a similar one to what I make. If the one you made before was too lemony, just cut back on the lemon. I prefer lots of garlic in mine. :D

"This is a good example of how Italian American restaurant cooks adapt a basic Italian food idea. Scampi is a Venetian dialect word for a local prawn, rarely found in American markets. So Italian American cooks use shrimp instead, cooking it with a little garlic." -John Mariani
2 teaspoons olive oil
28 large shrimp, peeled and deveined (about 1 1/2 pounds)
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup Sauvignon Blanc or other dry white wine
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp; sauté 1 minute. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Stir in wine, salt, and pepper; bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook 30 seconds. Add parsley and juice; toss well to coat. Cook 1 minute or until shrimp are done.
Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 7 shrimp)

Here's an oldie but goodie of a thread which includes the "Wendy way" of scampi making.

That sounds delicious, thank you. I don't follow a recipe for mine either but I think I'll give this a try! :)
