Easy Shrimp Scampi Recipe

We eat a lot of chicken around here.  Don’t get me wrong, I love chicken, but sometimes my family wants something a little different.  So the family is always happy when I serve this Easy Shrimp Scampi Recipe.

Seafood recipes are generally not on the top of my go-to recipe list.  I grew up on an island, so when it comes to fish and shrimp, I tend to be super picky.  (If the seafood’s not right off the boat, I’m often disappointed.) When buying the shrimp for this recipe, I followed the advice of the guy behind the seafood counter and was very pleased with the shrimp. (Thanks, seafood guy!)

  3. Add shrimp and Seasoning Mix; cook and stir 3 to 4 minutes or just until shrimp turn pink.
  4. Toss oil/butter/shrimp mixture with cooked pasta and lemon juice to coat well.
  5. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese.

  1. Also Pinned your recipe, I came to check it out because it looked delicious and found out you were having this giveaway. I'm very picky when it comes to sea food as well, I grew up on an Isthmus so we got fresh seafood pretty much every week, thanks for sharing and for the giveaway!

  2. I would love to try the Chicken Pot Pie from the soups and stews selection. Looks delicious!

  3. I have to try the shrimp scampi. McCormick spices are in my spice cabinet all of the time. I would like to ask them about how long their shelf life is. My spices tend to get hard (perhaps from humidity) before I get them all used up. When I use them, I always shake them into my hand or a small bowl and never pour them out over a a pan, as the steam could contribute to it getting hard. Any ideas? Hope you can answer my questions please.

    1. Hi, Jackie. I would guess humidity contributes to clumpy spices, especially if your spice cabinet is right next to your oven or stove. I grew up on an island on the Gulf Coast and our spices were always clumpy. The only thing I can recommend to help is add a few grains of regular rice to your spice containers. The rice will help absorb excess moisture.
      Good luck,

  4. This look so tasty. Must try this out very soon. Thanks for sharing.
