"I've probably been making this recipe since I got it from my Mom in about 1985. I have no idea where she got the recipe from. I've been changing it over the years, and now I call it my own. When we started dating back in 1997, my husband would every now and then order shrimp scampi at a restaurant and always regret it afterwards, saying none of them competed with mine. You can vary the amounts of some of the ingredients, like the cayenne and garlic, to suit your taste. That's what I've done here because we like spicy and garlicky. Yum! Serve over angel hair pasta or any pasta of your choosing." — WannaBACook

large shrimp, peeled and deveined
Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
Yummy! Made it for my husband's birthday! Comparable to Red Lobsters baked shrimp. I added shredded parmesan cheese to the bread crumbs. It was a little too spicy for me but my husband loved it! Will be making this again!
Absolutely loved it! I made it for my fiancé as a surprise and we both really enjoyed it. A nice Chardonnay compliments this dish very well too (just FYI).
OMG... my husband is more of a meat/potatoes kind of guy but he DEVOURED this and couldn't stop telling me how great this was! Only thing I did differently was using panko bread crumbs instead of Italian, although I'm sure Italian would've been just fine! Served the shrimp (and scampi sauce) over plain ol' spaghetti, with steamed broccoli and garlic bread on the side. Fantastic meal! Can't wait to make it again. Thank you thank you!
Wow this was vey good. Thanks for sharing.
It was OK as is, but it definitely was spicy. I thought it was just barely tolerably spicy, but my husband thought it was fine. Our kids wouldn't touch it because it was too spicy for them. It made a lot of sauce. I tried to spread out the sauce by throwing in a bag of stir fry veggies that I stir fried. I ended up mixing the whole shebang together with a full box of cooked spaghetti. It is easy and tasty, but I think I'll alter the heat level next time.
