Red Lobster Shrimp Scampi INSTRUCTIONS
Bake at 350-degree oven for about 6 to 7 minutes. Be careful not to overcook the Shrimp. The shrimp is done when it has turned pink.
This recipe will be for LARGE shrimp (21-30 per pound) Red Lobster's shrimp that they use might be LARGE MEDIUMS (30-40 per pound), but more likely are MEDIUMS (40-50 per pound). The smaller the shrimp, the less the cooking time.
Sprinkle the cleaned/prepared shrimp thoroughly with onion powder and garlic powder and then let them set in the refrigerator for at least 3-4 hours, overnight is even better.
Choose the right pan. You want a pan that will allow all of the shrimp lie flat on the bottom; none stacked on top of one another.
Now take 1 cup of white wine, 3 tsp of minced garlic and a stick of real butter and put them into a bowl and microwave them until everything is very warm. Don't over-nuc them, just very warm.
Now with a small wisk, stir up everything thoroughly and pour the liquid in the pan with the shrimp until the liquid is about ½ to ¾ up the side of the shrimp. The "top" side of the shrimp needs to be exposed to the heat. DO NOT completely cover the shrimp in the liquid. This mixture should probably do 2 lbs of shrimp.
Now with your broiler hot and ready for cooking and with your oven's shelf on the top slot, closest to the broiler, cook your LARGE shrimp about 5 minutes. Then turn the shrimp over on their other sides and repeat the process for another 5 minutes. With smaller shrimp the cooking time might have to be shortened a little.
Now let the red lobster shrimp scampi "rest" for about 10 minutes at room temperature
