I think this is the first Shrimp recipe on Budget Savvy Diva in 725 plus recipes. And it’s the ultimate Italian dish Shrimp Scampi

 I am not super comfortable working with shrimp or fish in general ( I think I have seen too much Hell’s Kitchen and Chef Ramsey screaming “The Fish is RAW” ) But I thought this is the start of a new year and I should expand my recipes a bit AND I am glad I did 🙂

This shrimp scampi recipe is a HUGE winner – my whole family ate it up in one sitting

OH and it was REALLY simple to make – you are basically baking the shrimp in a butter sauce



How can something taste bad when you are using a butter sauce ….. The answer – it can’t

You can see there is not much to this easy shrimp scampi recipe – but that is why it is SO good – it is simple flavors.

If you did not know my dad usually sets up the ingredient picture – I snapped a picture of his doing the Scampi ingredient step up.

Now you can serve the dish with pasta ( like I did ) or something else ( maybe rice?)

This dish itself is enough for 4 people – you can easily increase the serving amount – we used 1/2 pound of jumbo shrimp but you can totally double this recipe to a pound

You create a butter sauce add the uncooked shrimp – fold everything together and pour into a casserole dish and bake

During the baking time you can cook the pasta 🙂

Now let’s at the finished shrimp scampi pictures 🙂 But first big thanks for my dad holding the fork 😉
