Shrimp Scampi Bites
Shrimp Scampi is Gorton’s take on an Italian classic, and it comes in a “Bake Perfect Oven Bag,” which makes it incredibly easy to prepare at home. Simply pop it in the oven, and the shrimp cooks to perfection, while the bag locks in flavor for a perfectly cooked meal.
For the end-of-summer camping season, don’t forget to try my Shrimp Scampi Foil Pack Dinner!
Sharing a seafood feast with friends is one of the things we love about summer! You may have already tried our Fish Sticks Taco Board. Such a cool, bright, festive way to bring people together for Taco Night!
Simply Bake Shrimp Scampi Taco Bites
All the taco delights are in this recipe—picco de gallo, pineapple, cilantro, avocado, and delicious shrimp!
You can add fish to my Salmon Spaghetti Carbonara, and keep it in the freezer for weeknight meals or last-minute guests. My friend, Lori, used the same salmon and made delicious Salmon Wellington. Great for entertaining or camping or a weeknight meal.
How to make Shrimp Scampi Taco Bites
Start with pre-baked fillo cups. I love these little bites for easy appetizers.
Open a pack of Shrimp Scampi—cook and cool.
Fill the cups with fresh picco de gallo.
Prepare other fresh ingredients, like chunks of pineapple and avocado. Pull whole leaves off a cilantro bunch.
After the cups are full, place a shrimp on top! Serve and enjoy!
