Love Red Lobster, but hate the cost? Tempt Your Tastebuds with this Copycat Red Lobster Shrimp Scampi Recipe for a budget friendly solution!

This recipe has become one that my family asks me to make over and over again when I’m making my menu plan each month. It’s much better when you can use fresh shrimp, but frozen shrimp works just as well. Fresh shrimp can not only be expensive, but it can be hard to find…especially now that colder weather has set in. Frozen however, is available almost year round.

    Loved it-this dish is my favorite at Red Lobster! I have been experimenting with the recipe for a while and I can see from the recipe that i wasn’t using enough white wine (3/4 cup) not enough lemon and did not know to add parmesan cheese either. I have not been to Red Lobster in 10 years+ and I don’t believe they added cheese to the scampi at that time. Thanks so much for this post, it’s very much appreciated and I look forward to making this tomorrow night and enjoying! Thank you so much for sharing.

  2. We went to Red Lobster just last month for the first time in many, manyyears and the prices were high and the portions were small. Like the food but won’t be going back! This looks good. Is there something I can use in place of the white wine?
