Prawns are dredged in seasoned flour, pan-fried and grilled with a brandy and white wine garlic sauce. The resulting dish is lipsmackingly good. Serve with rice, pasta or potatoes.
This was absolutely the best shrimp scampi ever! it was simple, yet fantastic! If you follow the recipe its great. I threw some feta cheese on top of the shrimp before broiling it. You shouldn't rate the recipe based on your experience with it after changing the recipe. Its unfair for those who haven't tried it yet to consider it with a bad rating based on your recipe instead of the original one. - 18 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Great recipe for scampi. Tossed the brandy/wine mixture with some angel hair pasta, parmesan, red pepper flakes and poured the olive oil/shrimp over the top. It turned out great! The key with the shrimp is to fully butterfly them, dry them out using a paper towel, flour them and refrigerate before sauteing. Good luck and happy eating - 23 Sep 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This wasn't bad but I have had better. I added more garlic. I also thought it needed some lemon and maybe a little butter. I will not make again. - 16 Mar 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
