My dad's side of the family thought I couldn't cook until I made this during our family beach week. This and my spaghetti sauce were the talk of the week.

Living in the Maryland mountains, we don't get fresh shrimp here so I use a good quality frozen shrimp and cook it from its frozen state (my trick for fish stock since this is hard to find as well).

If you are lucky enough to have fresh seafood, you will have to add some fish stock to it to thin it out a little.

How to Make Shrimp "Scampi"


  1. In a 12 inch skillet, melt butter and add garlic. Be careful not to burn the garlic. Meanwhile, boil the spaghetti as directed.
  2. Add the shrimp and Old Bay Seasoning. Let "stew", stirring occasionally, until all shrimp are cooked.
  3. Serve over pasta with some of the sauce.
