This recipe for Shrimp Scampi with Broccoli and Linguine is simple and easy to make, and delicious enough that the whole family loves it!
One of the BEST Shrimp Scampi Recipes for an EASY weeknight dinner.
My kids are very active in sports and academic clubs, so I need an arsenal of Easy Weeknight Recipes, such as Shrimp Scampi Recipes for an Easy Weeknight Dinner.
Of course, you can make the scampi from scratch, but if you are in a hurry, like I often am, you sometimes need to utilize packaged goods.
In my area, Gorton’s and Seapak both sell frozen Shrimp Scampi.
Of course, I need 3 boxes if I buy it from the grocery store, but Sam’s Club sells by the case, which helps my budget!
Using frozen Shrimp Scampi, frozen Broccoli, and a box of Linguine, I can have dinner on the table in about 15 minutes!
If you prefer to make your own scampi sauce, or just use a packaged sauce mix, be sure to stop by your grocery store seafood counter and buy the peeled and deveined shrimp, to save some time!
Or, you can eliminate the broccoli.
Feel free to substitute the vegetable of your choice, or even no vegetable at all!
The family loved this dish, and can’t wait to have it again.
In fact, there are NO leftovers!
For next time, I would use a larger pan to cook the shrimp and broccoli in, and I would add the pasta to the pan to absorb some of the sauce as well before serving.
With growing boys in the house, I might also double the recipe to fill them up, and have some leftovers for lunch the next day.
