What can I use as a substitute for white wine in shrimp scampi?
Shrimp Scampi is traditionally made with white wine, but if you don’t want to cook with wine you can use chicken or vegetable broth instead. Broth/stock is generally a great substitute for white wine in recipes, because it adds a similar depth of flavor to dishes.
For this Shrimp Scampi with Pasta Recipe, I recommend:
Kitchen and Food Scale – A scale makes it so easy to measure the perfect amount of pasta and shrimp to use for this dish. You can also use a kitchen scale to accurately measure the weight of vegetables, meat, and flour to use in recipes.
