Ooh…that sounds and looks really good. Didn’t even know the had a shrimp scampi seasoning. Looks like I will need to try that! 🙂
This seasoning is VERY hard to find! I had to wing it and use what I had on hand. We checked multiple stores.
I am going to try the boneless oven fried chicken
Always looking to make my stir-fry dishes more authentic tasting, so I will be picking up the Asian seasoning!
The garlic butter shrimp scampi looks wonderful and I bet it tastes as good as it looks.

I’m a huge fan of the slow cooker. So I would be excited to try Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken. It has 5 stars. How can you go wrong?

I am making the scampi today, but I just got a slow cooker, and need your recipes/help. I am interested in any and all of them.
I would love to try this recipe! http://www.mccormick.com/Recipes/Dessert/Apple-Raisin-Bread-Pudding

I make this often for my family. They all love it! The only thing is we’ve never found the shrimp scampi seasoning. I substitute that with Weber’s brand Garlic and Herb seasoning packet, and it turns out fantastic every time!
I’ll have to try that one!
Super-easy weeknight dinner idea. Didn’t know McCormick had seasoning mixes. Thanks for sharing!
Garlic butter shrimp scampi looks wonderful and easy. Are you using cooked or raw shrimp? Photo shows cooked but I’m not sure. Thank you!
I used a frozen bag of shrimp that I then cooked in a skillet with butter.
lisa king says
I made this tonight with some fresh roasted garlic, baby spinach, mushrooms, and a little red bell pepper and green onion, AMAZING!!!!
Awesome Lisa! LOVE your additions to the recipe 🙂
Do you thaw the shrimp?
Any suggestions on a bread to go with this??
We love the Red Lobster biscuits! You can find the mix in the baking aisle.
Oh & where do you find the seasoning?
We just got it from our local grocery store in the seasoning aisle (with all the other McCormick packets).
This shrimp scampi is absolutely amazing. Definitely making this more often.
& the red lobster biscuits go great with it.
Jean Gregory says
Very easy recipe, but would add more garlic
Would I be able to substitute garlic butter instead of the package?
They package has a bunch of seasonings in it so I really would prefer that!
How many servings for the shrimp scampi recipe
Easily feed 4-6 people!
I have looked everywhere for this seasoning and cannot find it. What you suggest using in its place?
Oh, that stinks. Well if you use Amazon they have it available in bulk!
Sherie Kolbinger says
I made it and thought it was lacking flavor. I would not make it again.
Made shrimp scampi yesterday and it was very good.I was able to find the scampi seasoning mix at Wal-Mart for $2.30!

Question…what is the estimated carb count on a serving of this? I have a type 2 diabetic 15 yr old and am looking for healthy recipes for the whole family!
