    Sensationally easy midweek supper or starter. The grilled prawns are done when they've gone pink. Don't overcook! Serve with chips and salad.

    I love Scampi and have been sauteing it for years on the stove top. This is soooo much better! I did do it a little different, I added some fresh lemon juice. I broiled the shrimp with the butter, garlic and lemon juice (without the wine) for about 7 minutes until the shrimp and garlic turned a little brown, then added the wine to cook the last 5 minutes. Sprinkled with parley!! yum, yum. The whole family loved it!  -  16 Dec 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Made the following changes to this based on other comments and it was great. Added a couple of shakes of worchester sauce, 1/4 t fresh cracked pepper, 1/4 t lemon pepper, and sprinkled some parmesean cheese on top before broiling. Will make this again for a guick 15 min meal.  -  14 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is the scampi recipe I used -- not the other 12 here on allrecipes. I omitted the wine and doubled the garlic. We went nuts over it. I served it with fettuccine alfredo and spinach sauteed in butter. MMM...AWESOME!  -  13 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
