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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"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!!...

Not a fan of red peppers, so I substituted with sliced grape tomatoes and avocado. Cooked asparagus a min or two, then added tomato and avocado as not to make soggy. Added minced ginger, cayenne pepper for a kick, and fresh basil instead of parsley to sauce. Took shrimp out and cooked sauce down to thicken. Was a huge success in our house!

Good basic recipe

First, you didn't make the recipe. Second, if it was such a huge success why only three stars?

Best of the best.

Followed recipe until the sauce. Substituted cornstarch with arrowroot, added Thai basil, Tsp of butter, chives, lemongrass and ginger. Took shrimp out as to not overcook and OMG! Off the charts. Beyond 5 stars.

quick & easy...low in fat...high in taste!

I've made this twice now and both times it has been a big hit with the whole family. The only change was that I doubled the cornstarch for a bit more thickness to the sauce. The recipe makes plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day as well.

Easy, healthy, delicious

I was in a cooking rut and stumbled upon this gem. So good. I substituted grape tomatoes and corn for red peppers since I'm not a pepper fan. Also used farro as a side instead of quinoa because my husband isn't a fan of the quinoa. Very light, quick and delicious meal that even my 3 year old enjoyed.

Regarding the sauce, it is very runny but I removed the shrimp and let it simmer a bit more until the liquid was further reduced. It was perfect.

quick, easy, yummy
