Expert Tips
  • Saute the onion first and then the garlic so that the garlic does not overcook.
  • Peel and clean the shrimps before cooking, and remove the tails according to your preference.
  • Cook the shrimp until they turn pink. Be careful not to overcook the shrimp, as overcooking them damages their tissues and makes them tough and rubbery.
  • Shrimp scampi stays fresh for about 2 days when properly stored in airtight containers and refrigerated. Scampi can also be frozen in airtight containers or freezer bags for up to 2 months and thawed overnight in the refrigerator before being ready to be consumed.
