How to Prepare BGE – Garlic Shrimp Scampi

Raw Shrimp Size

For this cook it is recommended going with a medium size shrimp. Hopefully you live by the ocean so you can get these fresh off the boat and not have to buy them frozen from the store like we do in Michigan.

Raw Shrimp

If you have fresh shrimp start out by simply removing the veins. The black vein on the back of the shrimp is its digestive tract. The vein is easily removed with a pairing knife and by cutting down the backside of the shrimp.

Frozen shrimp usually have this process completed for you. Once removed pull the shell off and set aside.


In a bowl combine the garlic, white wine, crushed red pepper & black pepper.

Oil &Amp; Butter

Put the Extra Virgin Olive Oil on the cast iron skillet and add the Butter.
