This shrimp scampi alfredo was our Valentine’s Day dinner. I don’t know the last time we went out to an actual restaurant on Valentine’s Day. Of course it’s harder to arrange now that we have kids, but even before we became parents, we pretty much always stayed home. I’d almost always rather have a nice dinner at home than in a crowded restaurant! This lightened up alfredo dish is so good, you will think you are in a restaurant if you dim the lights and try not to notice all the toys on the floor and fingerprints on the windows. What’s better, it is SO EASY. It only takes about 10 minutes to make once the pasta water is boiling. Try getting take out that fast! Plus, thanks to Seapak Light Shrimp Scampi, it’s way lower in fat and calories than traditional shrimp alfredo. Do you love seafood at your house as much as we do? We love shrimp in soups, salads, pasta (obviously), and more. Fish is great on its own or in sandwiches or even burritos! I was so excited when SeaPak invited me to create a recipe because they have so many tasty products that make it easy to include seafood in your meals. My oldest son can eat a pile of their popcorn shrimp, so that one is a staple around here. What are some of your favorite ways to eat seafood for dinner? SeaPak is going to make it REALLY easy to eat your seafood by giving one lucky winner a year’s supply of free products! I would be so excited if it was a Weary Chef reader. Good luck! a Rafflecopter giveaway

This quick and easy shrimp alfredo recipe is much lighter than the traditional version and every bit as good!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package instructions and drain.
  2. While pasta cooks, melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Whisk flour into butter until smooth. Pour in milk 1/4 c. at a time, whisking constantly until smooth before adding more.
  3. When all milk is incorporated, add frozen shrimp scampi, and reduce heat to medium. Cook 5-8 minutes, stirring and turning shrimp often. Shrimp will be pink and C-shaped when cooked through. (Be careful not to overcook!)
  4. Turn off heat, and stir in parmesan until melted. Serve shrimp scampi alfredo over hot cooked noodles.

wE DON’T HAVE SEPAK SHRIMP SCAMPI IN OUR AREA. SO, HOW DO I MAKE THE RECIPE FOR THE LIGHTER ALFREDO SHRIMP SCAMPI? IT IS DIFFICULT WHEN YOU USE A FROZEN PRODUCT THAT I AM UNABLE TO BUY.

Hi, Bobbie! Sorry you can’t find that one! Frozen shrimp scampi is pretty readily available around here, so I thought it would be easy to find in most supermarkets. If you can’t find it, I would try this recipe instead. Thanks!

Hi, TJ. I’m sorry for the delay, but I had to check with the sponsor on why the rules weren’t displaying. They corrected the issue, and now you can see the terms and conditions beneath each entry. Please let me know if you have any more questions, and good luck!

My oldest is the same way – LOVES popcorn shrimp. We love shrimp in our house too (I pretty much love any seafood). I’ve never seen the shrimp scampi boxes – this looks really good!

I’m the same way, I don’t like going out to dinner on Valentine’s Day. I’d much rather a nice evening at home. I seriously love the way you made this shrimp scampi – looks so easy and delicious!

Thanks, Joanie. It’s super easy and turned out really well. My kids liked it too (although I kind of shorted them on shrimp…). ;)
