Shrimp Scampi: An Easy & Delicious Meal by

No need to visit a fancy restaurant to enjoy delicious shrimp scampi! This super easy meal can be made in around 15 minutes at home! Serve this buttery garlic shrimp dish with traditional, whole wheat, or gluten-free pasta or even zucchini “zoodles”.

Shrimp Scampi

Adapted from


1 lb. Raw Shrimp, defrosted, peeled & deveined
3/4 cup white wine (I used Chardonnay)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup butter
3 tablespoons minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
Garnish: Lemon, fresh parsley, grated Parmesan cheese
Restaurant Style Garlic and Buttery Shrimp Scampi Recipe
Directions: In a large skillet over medium heat, heat butter, olive oil, garlic, and white wine until almost boiling. Stir in shrimp, red pepper flakes and parsley flakes. Cook for about 4 minutes until shrimp turns pink (take care not to overcook shrimp). Serve shrimp on top of pasta with butter sauce. If desired, garnish with lemon, Parmesan cheese, and parsley. Serves 2-3.

Time Saving Tip: Make ahead noodles a day or two before and store in a Ziploc bag with a little olive oil to prevent sticking.

My family loved this meal so much. The wine sauce was so flavorful and we thought it came out better than a restaurant! It would be easy to double this recipe for a larger dinner party as well.

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
