Shrimp Scampi – Flavorful shrimp covered with breadcrumbs, broiled and tossed with buttery linguine!
This post may include affiliate links. Please see my disclosure
I’ve been craving light and fresh recipes as of late. When I think light and fresh, I usually think salads or seafood. I normally can only eat salads for lunch, however, because they just don’t seem to keep me satisfied for long. For dinner, I crave something with more substance, or I’ll be looking for a snack come 9:00 pm. Not good.
This shrimp scampi is SO simple and fast. I actually use frozen, cooked shrimp. Get this. . .I don’t even thaw it all the way. Who has time for that? The shrimp actually turns out perfect when doing it this way because it doesn’t overcook.
Preparing the Shrimp
The recipe calls for heating the ingredients in a skillet and then transferring to a baking pan to broil for the last 2-3 minutes.
Adding the Linguine
After broiling, toss the buttery linguine with the flavorful sauce and you’re ready to go.
You can literally throw this together in 20 minutes from start to finish. . .if that. However, it’s SO beautiful that those you serve it to will think you slaved away in the kitchen for hours. I won’t tell if you don’t. It’s our little secret.
This scampi is a winner. It’s delicious, light, fresh, fast and EASY! Let’s get to eating!
