Copycat Red Lobster Shrimp Scampi Recipe

Author Stacy Barr


  • 1 lb medium shrimp peeled and de-veined
  • 1 tablespoon pure olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons garlic finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups white wine
  • 1/2 fresh lemon Juice only
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 cup of butter softened
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese grated


  • Heat medium sized skillet over medium high heat. You can tell that your skillet is hot by dropping a water drop onto the surface of the skillet. If it sizzles, your skillet is heated.
  • Add olive oil and cook shrimp 3-5 minutes until they're pink.
  • Remove shrimp and set aside then reduce your heat to medium.
  • Add garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes then add the white wine and lemon juice and cook until the liquid is reduced to about half.
  • Reduce your heat to low, add the Italian seasoning and butter and cook until the butter is fully melted.
  • Once your butter is melted, add the parsley to your skillet then add your shrimp back in. Stir gently to coat your shrimp in the sauce and cook on low for a few minutes to heat and allow the sauce to cook to the shrimp a bit.
  • Remove your skillet from the heat and cover with your parmesean cheese.
  • Serve hot with a piece of crusty bread and salad
