  • 1 lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon pure olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups white wine, I use chardonnay

How To Make Famous Red Lobster Shrimp Scampi

  1. Heat a cast iron skillet and add olive oil.
  2. Add shrimp and cook until tender and no longer translucent; reduce heat. Remove the shrimp and set them aside.
  3. Add garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes. Do not allow the garlic to brown, as it will make it bitter.
  4. Add white wine and lemon juice.
  5. Cook until the wine is reduced by half. After it is reduced, add Italian seasoning.
  6. Reduce the heat to low, and add butter. If the pan is too hot, the butter will separate.
  7. Add the shrimp back into the sauce, add parsley, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  8. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan Cheese.

Enjoy your homemade Red Lobster Shrimp Scampi – a delectable restaurant-style dish that’s now a family favorite! You can savor it on top of freshly cooked pasta or, like me, enjoy it with some crusty bread. It’s a taste of luxury right at your own dining table.
