  1. There actually is no wine in Red Lobster's Shrimp Scampi. It's just garlic powder, white pepper, and butter. I used to work there, and did broil prep. This recipe may work, but it's nowhere near the real thing. Sorry.

    1. how much of each and what temperature to cook at and for how long .... are the broiled or baked????

    2. Obviously English is not your first language
