Reviews forSimple Shrimp Scampi
"This is super fast to make for a busy evening. I added a bit of fresh dill to the mix. I served it over angel hair pasta with freshly shaved parmesan cheese."
"I served this over white rice and it was delicious! Couldn't be any easier to prepare!"
"This is great!"
"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."
"I love shrimp scampi. I make mine with capers and add some bread crumbs with parmesan cheese. Next time I'll add some white wine to it as suggested by reviewer "annfalco", thanks! Anything with white wine is good."
