  1. I used two and a half pounds of the 41/50 shrimp, and I added dry parsley with the other ingredients then baked it. I served it with seafood seasoned boiled small red potatoes, corn on the cob, fresh garlic, and onions along with sourdough rolls. I even had enough left over to make Po’ Boys and Scampi. Great recipe, will definitely serve this again!! Thanks & Namaste.

  2. So I made this and served it on top of your TRIED AND TRUE kale salad with quinoa & cranberries!!!! SO AMAZING!! YOU are amazing for sharing all of these recipes!! Thank you Gina!!!!

  3. This was excellent. Simple and packed with flavor. A great example of “less is more”. I will make this again. Had it tonight with the Baked Spinach Pie and a leafy green salad. Excellent, thank you Gina! 🙂 Love your recipes. 😀

  4. Silly question…so do you divide the shrimp between 2 sheet pans? 

    Thanks!  Love your recipes 😊😍

  5. My bf loooooves shrimp so I am going to try this over spaghetti squash for a low carb shrimp scampi

  6. Loved this! i used smaller shrimp and added salt and a bit of lemon peel.  Yum!  A hit with my picky family.

  7. This was good but I needed to add salt to taste the flavors.

  8. I can’t cook and I don’t cook but this looked fairly foolproof. Thankfully it really was! It really is as easy as it sounds but it’s more delicious than you’d think given how simple it is!

  12. Hi. I made the mistake of using “large” shrimp instead of “jumbo”. I cooked them for 6 minutes but didn’t take into consideration that the shrimp I used was smaller and cooked faster. In spite of my error the result was delicious even if just a bit overcooked. Totally my fault….and I thank you for your wonderful recipes. I’m a weight watcher member and this is perfect for the new Freestyle program.

  13. Can I do this with shrimp and scallops? Will it alter the cooking time? Thinking about it for Christmas Eve tomorrow. Thanks!

  14. Do you have to turn the shrimp over during the cooking?

  15. Hi, can I use this for meal planning? Or will the shrimp go bad?

  16. Omg delicious!!  Thank u!!!

  17. Is that 1.5 pounds before or after you peel the shrimp? Thanks!

  18. Hi, for the nutrition is it per serving or for all 4 servings?

  19. Made this for dinner tonight and my husband and I loved it. Tasted just like shrimp scampi without the guilt! I put it over brown rice and made roasted asparagus using the same olive oil, garlic, red pepper flake, and lemon combination as the shrimp. SO GOOD!
