This is a great scampi and we really loved everything about it. The sauce was delicious! We had it over linguine along with some Italian bread to sop up all the buttery goodness.

I love how easily this recipe came together and how fast it got me out of the kitchen on a busy weeknight. Great tasting dish that will be seeing many repeats here. made for the Alphabet Soup Recipe Tag Game.

Delicious! Very easy to make and it has a wonderful flavor. The amount and consistency of the sauce was just perfect! I have had shrimp scampi that was swimming in butter, which I could not eat. But this recipe has the perfect amount of sauce that we prefer. We enjoyed our plate of scampi with some Texas toast and a glass of white wine. I know I'll make this recipe again. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Tink.
