I don't cook shrimp, scampi, lobster, etc. at home. I only eat them when I am out. DH doesn't like to eat arthropods

Pretty much the same way you do, I just like DaVinci linguini with shellfish dishes (Barillia is my usual pasta favorite, but I like the finer texture of the da Vinci linguini).

Since I live near absolutely no ocean, I buy IQF shrimp and scallops, the shrimp de-veined and cooked, so all I do is thaw and toss into the sauce to heat. In the summer my herb garden is to die for, so I use what is beautiful that day.

I can understand that. Considereing lobsters belong to the cockroach family.

I use pretty much the same method only I leave out the wine and depending on my mood sometimes add a little lemon or a splash of lime.

I have never actually had Shrimp Scampi! Your recipe looks delicious though Margi, so I will have to try it someday. I love shrimp.

Wink @ Barbara L. : This Is Truly A Must Put On Your List !

Good Afternoon Barbara,

Shrimp Scampi is truly a must put on your list for special occasion dinners !

Remember what Princess Fiona said: This is how she snagged Shrek !

None the less, this is so simple and lovely ... It is a breeze to prepare and a delight as an appetiser too !

It is low calorie and light, refreshing and not too expensive to make. So, it is all pluses !!

Thanks for your feedback.

Kind regards.
Margi.

The movie shows clearly what scampi look like. If you remove the heads they could easily be mistaken for shrimp. The little tail (lobster tail) would be the give away. I do not believe scampi are available in the U.S.A.

Pretty much the same way.


A different twist...

Greek-Style Shrimp Scampi:


linguini
shrimp
extra-virgin olive oil
garlic, thinly sliced
red pepper flakes
lemon, zested and juiced
oregano, chopped
kalamata olives, chopped
white wine
flat-leaf parsley
feta cheese, crumbled
S&P, to taste

(A few artichokes can't hurt ;-))

I used to love Shrimp Scampi but these days there's too much oiliness/butter for me to really enjoy it. I think it's a psychological thing...

Though I use the same basic recipe. I don't have herb butter so I just add the herbage to the dish directly and I usually don't add pepper flakes. It's a pretty forgiving dish to add or subtract things as you like. Also not a huge fan of capellini so I usually sub my favorite, linguine, for most long pasta dishes.
