Good morning everyone! I’m so happy that it’s Friday. Even though I’ve had the last two days off and I won’t be back at work until Tuesday, I still love Fridays.
Today I’m posting one of my family’s all time favorite recipes. This used to be a once in a while kind of thing, a treat, but over the last few years it’s actually become affordable to make. And it’s so easy my kids could make it.
1 1/2 lb shelled and deveined raw shrimp
4 lg cloves garlic
1 cup butter
2T tomato paste
2T lemon juice
Crush garlic. In small sauce pan melt butter with garlic, tomato paste and lemon juice over low heat, stirring often.
Place shrimp in single layer in flat Pyrex type baking dish. Pour butter mix over shrimp so all are coated.
Broil on high 5 minutes or until shrimp are pink.
Serve over egg noodles, rice or couscous
We do this recipe at least once a month at our place. Add a little Parmesan cheese and it’s sooooo good! I tend to add a little extra garlic.

Hey Ceri, Like your recipe. I make Shrimp Scampi a lot, but never use tomato paste, just olive oil, lemon juice, garlic (lots), and white wine. We always serve it with rice. I’ll have to try it your way some time.
It’s funny how many different recipes there are out there for scampi. Scampi is the one thing I won’t order out because I love my recipe so much.
YUM…sounds good and easy…my type of recipe.
Thanks for helping me add something new to my kitchen that I haven’t tried before.
You’re very welcome. I’m all about easy cooking, so the simpler the recipe the better. I have one recipe I’m going to post some day that is not simple in any way shape or form, but it’s soooo good (and so bad for you!) Stay tuned. 🙂
I’m not a fan of shrimp, but my kids love it so we’ll have to try this recipe. I like that they can make it themselves, too.
It really is easy. They don’t even mind cleaning the shrimp! Hope they like it. 🙂
It’s times like this I wish my family ate shrimp! It’s just me and maybe one two sils who eat it and so I rarely make it. I mostly get it when dh and I go out usually.
