There is nothing not to love about shrimp with garlic, parsley, butter, lemon juice, and white wine.
I have previously posted my recipe of the ever popular Hawaiian shrimp scampi, ones that I sampled in Oahu, however there is a problem, I need to make it with shelled and deveined shrimp and simplify the recipe so I can enjoy it more.
This amazing roasted shrimp scampi is simply the EASIEST shrimp scampi recipe ever. Roasted in oven and the only thing you need to do is prep the garlic, parsley, rinse the shrimp, combine all the ingredients together in a baking dish and shove it in the oven.
Broil it for 4-5 minutes or until cooked, and and you will have the most delicious, juicy, succulent shrimp scampi ever. There is ZERO cooking time on the stove top, and takes only 10 minutes in total from prep to dinner table.
Really, just look at the pictures, seeing is believing!
Roasted shrimp scampi is scrumptious on its own, but you can serve it over pasta of your choice, for example linguine, or with rice.
The yummy juice from roasting the shrimp in the oven is bursting with the briny flavors of the fresh shrimp, and you just want to slurp it from the dish.
I served mine with rice (as I always have rice at home) and finished my dinner in 3 minutes. Who would have thought that something so simple that takes only 10 minutes can be so satisfying and delicious.
This recipe is inspired by The Kitchn. Make a big batch, double or triple up the recipe and feed your entire family, I am sure they will be begging you for more every day!
