Add the shrimp and cook until they turn pink and opaque, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove the shrimp from the skillet and set aside.

Step 3: Make the Scampi Sauce

In the same skillet, add the remaining butter and minced garlic. Cook for about 1 minute until fragrant.

Pour in the white wine or chicken broth, lemon juice, and Italian seasoning. If using, add a pinch of red pepper flakes.

Bring the sauce to a simmer and let it cook for 2-3 minutes to reduce slightly.

Step 4: Combine Shrimp and Sauce

Return the cooked shrimp to the skillet and toss to coat in the sauce. Cook for another minute to heat the shrimp through.

Step 5: Garnish and Serve

Sprinkle with chopped parsley before serving.

Cooking Note:

Be careful not to overcook the shrimp, as they can become tough and rubbery.

Serving Suggestions:

Serve the Shrimp Scampi over cooked pasta, rice, or with crusty bread to soak up the delicious sauce.


For an alcohol-free version, use chicken broth instead of white wine.
