It was good but not great. I would reduce the lemon juice to 1 T. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good! Served over no yolk broad noodles. item not reviewed by moderator and published
An awesome lo-cal meal! I make it without pasta although pasta or some crusty bread would be ideal for the tasty sauce. I make this recipe exactly as is and am pleased every time! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was very good, I served it with a side of brown rice to complete the meal. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Pretty good. Honestly, I don't think it's possible to give something this healthy five starts because it never tastes as good as stuff that's bad for you. That being said, an excellent light fare. I added red pepper flakes for additional flavor. Really enjoyed it as much I can enjoy any healthy food. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this recipe was fantastic. Super easy to whip up. I served mine over whole wheat rotini with freshly grated parmesan cheese. item not reviewed by moderator and published
really good and super easy to make item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried this recipe last week for the first time, just trying to find something different and healthy. The whole family loved it. I had never had artichoke hearts before and they just add something different, and taste surprisingly wonderful with this dish. My husband even said it tastes better than Red Lobsters. Will definitely be making this super easy dish again soon. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is so easy and so delicious!!!Great to have a new recipe for shrimp. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was pretty good. I added a few of my own spices, but I think overall it was tasty. I will be making this dish again... item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love it! I have been making this (from your recipe ever since I saw it a few years ago. I love all your recipes. They are good and they are light. I am always counting the calories! Thank you so much. Make more. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was DELICIOUS! I will definitely add this to our routine meals because it was so easy. My husband says dipping the crusty whole wheat bread into the shrimp scampi tasted like a yummy artichoke seafood dip. It was creamy even without the butter and I loved the artichokes which made the dish amazing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this was a delicious and healthy way to have Shrimp Scampi. I can't believe how good it tasted without the butter. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A new favorite! It does not get easier than this -- seriously! I would never have thought to pair artichoke hearts and shrimp but this was absolutely awesome. I put this together with the crushed potatoes (also wonderful and so simple and the simple salad presto! I'm a very busy Mom and I really appreciate when a chef puts together something so tasty and so satisfying and so easy. This busy, tired Mom wants to send a big huge thank you to Ellie -- my favorite FN nutritionist/chef! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Tried this recipe the other night. We loved it. My husband especially loved it with the artichokes. I doubled the recipe so we could have leftovers, it was great!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe! I have made it several times. It's flavorful and is filling. You don't miss the noodles. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I think I have a bit of an obsession with artichoke hearts so this was right up my alley. I added lots of crushed red pepper for some spice. Great, simple, quick recipe for a weeknight. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish was so full of flavor and so incredibly easy. It literally took me about 15-20 minutes. My husband was amazed because Rachel Ray's 30 minute meals take me approx. 2 hours. The only change I made was adding more garlic because I love garlic. I served it over cooked buckwheat. I will definitely be making this again:) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't care for this at all it was very bland and lacked flavor. I really don't think you can compare this dish to scampi because it doesn't have that strong buttery garlic taste to it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So quick, so easy, so delicious. Make this tonight!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe! It's so quick and easy to whip up and I always have the ingredients on hand. I often serve it over brown rice to soak up the juice. My husband LOVES this mean and I always double the garlic for him and the lemon for me. Great for a last minute dinner! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I love this dish. I double the recipe so we have lots of leftovers. It is easy to make, tastes delicious and never disappoints us. We love artichokes so very much and to have artichokes and the shrimp together, well it is yummy!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I did add 2 tsp of butter with the oil and extra garlic and red pepper. My kids loved it! I added angle hair pasta from Dreamfields, which is a low carb pasta and Aspargus peeled and steamed. YUM YUM! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This has become a new favorite in our household! We love it and make it frequently. I don't think of it as a true scampi, but the flavors are fantastic. item not reviewed by moderator and published
my husband and roomate loved it! i made ellie's herb toasted pita chips to go along with it. it was a perfect combo. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish is really good. It was very lemony and tangy. I also topped it with silvered almonds and grated parmesan cheese and served it on top of small bow tie pasta. I think I would have liked a little more sauce, but I did eyeball everything. I also added some crushed red peppers on mine. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was really wanting to make a shrimp recipe that didn't have butter in it and this was all I could find. I read that this was bland before making it and tried to spice it up with spinach, garlic, and even artichokes that were marinated in herbs and olive oil. It was still just so bland! My husband loves my cooking and did not like this recipe at all. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My whole family loved this. At first I thought there was a bit too much of a lemon flavor for me but the more I ate the more I loved it. Perfect with a little parmasen cheese grated on top! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I dont know why ppl said it was a blan dish i thought it was great and healthy tasting. i made some whole wheat orzo boiled in muchroom broth to go with it it was so yummy item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was so easy to prepare. The only change I made was to add a little red pepper flakes. I did not miss the butter of traditional scampi at all. This is one of my new favorites. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We loved this recipe. Next time I will serve lemon wedges with each plate so everyone can add a little extra. This recipe is very fresh and would be excellent for summer. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed the comments below and added some Cherry Tomatoes, Spinach and a dash of Red pepper flakes just after I had turned over the shrimp. It was sooo good. It would probably also be great on pasta (but I am trying to do low carb for dinner). Next time I am going to make 2 servings and use the leftover on pre-boiled pasta for a yummy (and more filling)lunch the next day. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This mock Shrimp Scampi, is a real winner and its so easy to tweak and add other things for your own taste. I can't wait to make a much larger amount and have some friends over. I live alone and love to cook. This recipe made a nice dinner for me with a nice amount left over for lunch the next day. Thanks, and keep up with the great recipes Ellie. Many Blessings, Arlene Milwaukie, Oregon item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought it was terrible..very bland............., I would add tomatoes and a dash of hot sauce.................., but then I wont try it again so its moot. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I would love to try this recipe, but there is no nutritional info. Does anyone know where this information would be found. I need to check the sodium and sugar amounts. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a good recipe but if you add additional flavors it turns it into excellent for a healthy alternative to Scampi. I added the zest of one lemon and a little extra lemon juice and garlic along with salt and red pepper. Typically I serve this over spaghetti squash but its out of season. I also added the artichoke hearts before the shrimp to ensure they had time to absorb the flavors and heat through. For a variation when serving on top of spaghetti squash I use chicken broth (more than recipe calls for when using wine) and add a thickener at the end to make a wonderful scampi sauce. Excellent weight watchers recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a wonderful quick dinner! Perfect substitute for "real" scampi with all the butter. We didn't miss it at all because the artichokes and wine add a great tangy flavor. I was confused by the serving size though -- my husband and I had just over 2 cups each and there was none leftover! I'll definitely make extra next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Daughter said it was the best shrimp she ever had. I will definitely make this often, it is quick, easy and healthy. I added fresh spinach which I liked. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried a new receipe every day and this one was rated best at home. this was easy to make and healthy item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just made the scamp, and although I agree its not the traditional buttery scampi, it still had great flavor. It was a really easy, light, flavorful summer dish. I highly reccomend it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for dinner tonight and loved it!! I will make it again! It was easy and super quick. I loved all the garlic and lemon flavors. I was not sure that it would taste like scampi without the butter, but it was not missed. I recommend it to a really good alternative to the fattening traditional scampi. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was so good I tweaked the wine to be about half white zinfandel and half cooking wine and it was perfect! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The career woman's trio of perfection! A couple shakes of cayenne pepper added while the shrimp is cooking give this dish a little sassy heat. I piled the shrimp & artichoke mixture atop fresh baby arugula and ripe, diced tomatoes and drizzled the sauce over the leaves to give them a slight wilt. So good! The dish looks beautiful enough to enjoy with guests over a glass of white wine; the perfect summer dinner! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Okay, yeah, this isn't going to taste like that heavy, buttery shrimp scampi at your favorite restaurant. But this is a GOOD, solid recipe- sometimes uncomplicated, simple ingredients are the best. Hubby thinks it's on of my best recipes.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really liked this reciepe. I served it with fetachini alfrado and it was a reciepe that created smiles at my table! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sorry Ellie, I was sort of disspointed, maybe due to my own mistakes... I used cooking wine and canned artichokes. Not sure if the cooking wine lacked luster and the canned artichokes seemed to water down the dish. It was bit more expensive than I thought too after buying ingredients... I like artichokes but as some other said the dish lacked something. Oh and for anyone else, really watch how much red wine vinegar you do for the dressing on salad I put too much and it was very bitter (live and learn!) Anyway, I am trying the balsamic chicken tonight :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe has become a quick and easy staple in my weeknight repertoire. Thanks, Ellie! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I took the reviewers suggestions and added some extra flavors. I chose red pepper flakes, sage, and extra garlic. I'm glad i did. It was good, but i would not tell anyone its shrimp scampi before i serve it to them b/c they would be disappointed. It does not taste like shrimp scampi at all. It was, however, tasty, fresh, easy, and quick. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I make this scampi a lot my family just loves it THANKS Ellie. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Good stuff, will definitely make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've never rated a dish before, but this was so amazing that a compliment is deserved. Quick, easy and suprisingly tasty. I used vermouth as my dry white wine. This is our new family favorite for shrimp (non health aspiring husband included). item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so easy and DELICIOUS!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
As written our family thought it needed more garlic and lemon flavor. It was good though, nice to have a scampi without the butter. Don't know if I'd make this particular version again item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just loved it ,so simple easy and delecious....................Ellie you are the best , your recipes are easy , delecious and healthy item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I loved this recipe! I added the artichokes a few minutes before the shrimp so they could cook through. Didn't want to overcook the shrimp. I also added the zest of the lemon which added a ton of flavor. I served with Ellie's Golden Crushed potatoes which were awesome as well. I would make this recipe again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was good, but I will add some of the following next time: cherry tomatoes, asparagus, spinach, peppers or pine nuts. I served over brown rice. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ellie's recipes are the best. Everyone loved this (even my picky son) Why can't Ellie be on Food Network everyday? She's the best! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I adjusted a few minor things, but I absolutely loved this dish! I served it over angel hair pasta and added a bit more wine and lemon. It turned out great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this was an excellent recipe. The artichokes added such a wonderful flavor to it. Will definitely make it again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used frozen raw shrimp and canned artichokes, which I always have on hand. The other things are staple ingredients too so this was a fast, easy and tasty mid week dinner. Just added a little zest from even more of a citrus taste item not reviewed by moderator and published
I read the reviews on this recipe that said it was a little plain so I add 1/4 teaspoon of hot pepper flakes to the oil while the garlic and shallots sauted - it helped, but it still needs something. Probably would not make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved the recipe but would suggest cooking all of the flavors together longer before putting the shrimp in. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a really great scampi -- light and refreshing. I also added some capers and served it over angel hair pasta. My husband loved it. item not reviewed by moderator and published

INCREDIBLE! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Needs some sprucing. Was OK, but probably will not make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome simple recipe! I just made it the 2nd time and remembered just how much my husband I liked it. It is not missing all the butter at all and the artichokes and shallots taste just as yummy as the shrimp. I am already dreaming of the next time I make it!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Could use additional ingredients and flavorings to compliment this dish. It was a good dish to be improved upon. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This dish was quick to make and very tastey item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish was simple to make and tasted great! My whole family loved it. My only complaint was that it was a bit salty. Other than that, though, it tasted great. Anything with artichokes is usually a plus for me, and when you add shrimp and white wine...perfection! :o) item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was great! I didn't know you could get frozen artichoke hearts, so that was a nice discovery as well! I also cooked some whole wheat linguine that I through into the pan at the very end, just to get it all mixed together. yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
WONDERFUL DISH AND HEALTHY...IS GREAT WITH CHICKEN AND CRAB MEAT AS WELL! VERY EASY TO MAKE AND QUICK! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe. I even used frozen shrimp and it was still great. So much flavor with the shallots and garlic. item not reviewed by moderator and published
i'll admit the kitchen smelled wonderful, but i think the dish lacked that punch of flavor. I did scale the recipe down for one, so i'll give it one more try. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband loved this one. I don't think I patted the frozen artichokes and shrimp down enough, because I think it made the pan sauce watered down, but I will definitely make this a regular meal. The hardest part is shelling the shrimp, which is really no biggy. Thanks Ellie! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy to make and didn't even miss the butter or pasta! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this recipe. I did have to add a little more olive oil than called for, which I know adds calories, but it was too dry to even cook without is. I added fresh asparagus to the shallots and garlic before adding the artichokes and shrimp. It was great over a tiny bit of whole wheat angel hair pasta. Would make again!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These was very good and low on calories. I paired it with a salad and it was great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
