Shrimp Scampi Bake

2 Comments

Now I know what you’re thinking ~ look at all that butter!!  I thought the same thing.  Which is why I used a serrated spoon when spooning the shrimp over my rice.  I think the shrimp tastes so much better cooking in the butter.

I love this recipe.  The addition of the Dijon in the sauce gives the scampi just enough of a different flavor that makes the sauce a bit unusual.  It’s also nice to pop it in the oven instead of cooking on the stove top.
