Leaner, Meaner Shrimp Scampi Follow-up

on April 27, 2010

Hi everyone. Okay I made this dish tonight. It was delicious! It wasn’t so heavy as shrimp scampi sometimes is with all the butter and oil. The noodles were coated nicely and the parmesan cheese of course made it perfect. I also added fresh basil to the finished dish which gave it a great flavor as well. The recipe says it makes 2 servings and that is correct. If you have another dish to serve with it then you can stretch it to maybe 4 servings. And to try yet another dish I decided to try the “Braised Cucumbers” recipe I had seen the other day in Julie & Julia. I didn’t use real butter and it still came out very good! I am trying to cut calories so I used “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Mediterranean Style”. It was still delicious! And of course John added parmesan cheese to his. So I followed his lead and it was even better! Very tasty. I was surprised. The sauce turned into a sort of syrup and it was just a very different taste all around. I would make it again, though I may make it Italian by adding a little garlic. So a success for two new dishes tonight! Oh and by the way the name Leaner, Meaner Shrimp Scampi, was my stab at being witty. ♥
