Perfect as a main dish recipe or a side dish, this deliciously light Shrimp Scampi Recipe is a great meal to have in your arsenal. It’s super easy to make, loaded with flavor, and full of protein, and is one of the better baked shrimp scampi recipes I’ve tried.

Most traditional shrimp recipes, particularly Lemon Garlic Shrimp, use a LOT of butter. If you are a Weight Watcher, you know that lots of butter = lots of Weight Watchers Points.

But with just a 4 Points per serving, this slimmed down seafood recipe is a fabulous alternative!

    Holy cow, this was good! Highly recommend this dish. I will definitely make this again. But next time I won’t let my little kitty supervise from the breakfast bar while I mince the shallots. She had crocodile tears in her eyes! Poor little girl.
    I added a little bit of white wine. Maybe just an ounce or so.

    Wow! This was a wonderful recipe. It was easy and fast, and I was in such a hurry I forgot to put in the light butter and it still was delicious. My husband loved it and so did I. I will make this again, soon.
