Normally just a pile of shrimp drowned in butter, shrimp scampi gets a kick in the pants from our recipe, both nutritionally and flavorfully. We cook our shrimp in a reasonable amount of butter to get the taste and silky mouthfeel of classic scampi, then we make a garlicky sauce with lemon and pepper for even more flavor. A serving of shrimp atop cooked orzo makes for a complete meal, but the calories per serving are under control at 403.
Crushed red pepper is optional in this recipe but, if you can take the heat, it will give the flavors in this pizza a kick. Heating a cookie sheet in the oven before you put the pizza on it gives you a crisper crust.
