Shrimp Scampi

December 1, 2010 | Fish & Seafood, Pasta & Pizza

I’m back from Mexico where I had a wonderful time relaxing in the sun for a week with my family. And as the saying goes, from the frying pan to the fire, I immediately jumped into a bunch of family obligations back in Colorado. Fortunately, I cooked and photographed some recipes prior to the trip so I’ll share them now until I can get back into the kitchen. First up is this simple oven baked shrimp scampi. Start by laying shrimp in a single layer of a baking dish and covering with minced garlic and parsley.Next cover with breadcrumbs and Parmigiano cheese, then drizzle with melted butter.Bake until the shrimp are just cooked through, about 10 minutes.You’ll know they are done because the shrimp will have turned white and the cheese will be melted – not to mention the garlic aroma wafting through your kitchen!You can eat the scampi plain, or serve them over pasta with a simple sauce of lightly heated fresh tomatoes like I did. Either way, simple and delicious!

  1. wow that’s amazing recipe and looks yummy, for the bread crumbs can you buy packet? also can you replace just normal prawn as it is quite hard to get fresh scampi in where I live.
