Here's a healthy twist on shrimp scampi. We left out the butter and loaded the dish up with red peppers and asparagus for a refreshing spring meal. Serve with quinoa.

Why use 'low sodium' stock then add salt???

Another 'healthy' recipe which uses low sodium stock then adds salt...why?????? Skip the salt (as others mention). Corn starch makes a lousy thickener for this. Try a slurry using potato or tapioca starch which will thicken and glisten, not get 'starchy'. Otherwise a good basic recipe. PS I added a few drops of sesame oil at the end...makes a big difference!

Easy, colorful

No added salt and still tasted great!

I added about a cup of quinoa directly to the dish and skipped the salt and the dish still tasted great!

Meh

I would not make this again. Nothing horrible about it, lots of great ingredients but together no big deal. It would have been better if everything was marinated and then grilled.

Very fast and easy recipe. Instead of quinoa, I used brown rice. It tasted delicious!! I may have used a little too much corn starch on accident. So I had to thin the sauce a bit with more broth. It was an easy fix and turned out great!! It's only my hubby and I so used 2 red peppers, 1 lb. of shrimp, and 1 lb. of asparagus. Very easy recipe to make your own!

I thought this was a tasty, fresh meal. I would make it again only I would use less salt. I used green beans instead of asparagus and it was delicious.
