Red Lobster Shrimp Scampi

A copycat of one of my favorite places to eat. This is very similar to what Red Lobster has on their menu. Their lobster Scampi with shrimp is the perfect balance of the two seafoods, along with the right amount of spices.

This dish comes out tasting very decadent and juicy. The shrimp are seared and then simmered in the lemon butter sauce.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            How do I store this dish?

This dish can be placed into an airtight container and then placed into the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Seafood does not last a long time, so be forewarned about keeping it past the date.

            Can I freeze this dish?

Yes, you can freeze this for up to 3 months.  Place it into a freezer safe, airtight container and then into the freezer.

            Could I add Scallops to this and have a trio?

You could, I have never tried this though, so let us know how it turns out. Be sure to make additional sauce or there will not be enough to cover all the seafood.

            Do I have to use the white wine?

The alcohol will cook off when you make the sauce, if that is what concerns you. I would leave the wine in, if you could find a white cooking wine.
