This was easy and really good. However, I did make changes. I added a cup of dry white wine, used fresh garlic, added a teaspoon of lemon juice and a teaspoon of Italian seasoning. I served over angel hair pasta and topped it with fresh Parmesan.
This is not any shrimp scampi - it's made with white wine. NEVER soup - gross.
Not as flavorful and tasty as a more traditional scampi dish made with cloves of garlic (versus garlic powder) and white wine. But for a fast weeknight meal, it fit the bill just fine. Served over hot couscous.
Very good. I made 1/2 of the recipe and added 1/4 cup white wine to the butter mixture. Quick and very easy!
