This is a favorite dish here in our household. Wonderfully tasty & incredibly easy. I don’t want to call it shrimp scampi, because technically it’s just not. But it sure tastes pretty darn similar to it. So, we refer to it as ‘Shrimp Scampi-ish’. We’re just so clever here in the Mrs. home.
- 1 to 1.5 pounds raw shrimp (peeled or unpeeled, up to you)
- 1 0.7oz package dry Italian dressing mix (or make your own)
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- For oven method:
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the stick of butter in a large casserole dish & stick it in the oven to melt completely. Remove; add the shrimp. Sprinkle on the Italian seasoning. Return to the oven & cook for 12-15 minutes, or until shrimp is done (should be pink).
- For the stove top:
- Preheat a large skillet on medium-high heat. Add the butter to melt. Once melted, add the shrimp. Sprinkle on the Italian seasoning, & cook for 5 minutes before flipping. Flip the shrimp & cook for an additional 3-5 minutes – or until the shrimp is done (should be pink).
