Comments about Marie Callender's Shrimp Scampi:

I don't write much about frozen dinners anymore but this is not just a review, it's a Public Service Announcement.  You will be able to locate ***Marie Callender's Shrimp Scampi*** in the frozen foods aisle and when you do, **don't even think about buying it**.  Just keep pushing your cart right on by -- or if they are having a really irresistable sale on Marie Callender products, pick some **other **entree.

From even a brief glance at the label info, I could see that ***Marie Callender's Shrimp Scampi*** was a nutritional minefield but after all, this is **Shrimp Scampi** and frankly I was enticed by the ingredients which included linguine pasta, shrimps, lemon juice, garlic, butter, sherry, and my favorite ... red and yellow bell pepper strips.  It sounded delicious and perhaps a neat meatless option for Lenten Fridays.  I figured it would be fattening but what I didn't realize was that it would be so **frustrating**.  ***Marie Callender's Shrimp Scampi*** is **FRUSTRATING FOOD**.  I probably had more luck feeding myself back when I was a year old and my mother was teaching me to handle my own spoon!  Although I followed the heating instructions carefully, the pasta and other ingredients were smothered in a sauce which was so slick and slippery that most of what I tried to lift to my mouth fell off the fork.  It was only with repeated efforts and much determination that I was able to taste any of it at all.  What I actually managed to eat was delicious but the succulent, tender looking shrimps were about as tender as rubber pencil erasers and so patently unchewable so that I had to end up swallowing them whole, like some people eat oysters.

**STATS:**

Always supposing that you have the steely resolve and heroic patience to actually finish ***Marie Callender's Shrimp Scampi***, you will have consumed one (dearly fought for) single serving which contains 380 calories with 130 calories from fat.  There are 15 grams total fat, 8 grams saturated fat, zero trans fat, 70 mg. Cholesterol, 1,200 mg. Sodium, 300 mg. Potassium, 45 grams Total Carbs, 4 grams Dietary Fiber, 1 gram Sugars, and 16 grams Protein.  Vitamins and minerals include:  10% (D.V.) each Vitamins A, E, B12, Iron, Magnesium, and Manganese, 15% each Vitamin B6 and Phosphorus, 2% Calcium, 30% Vitamin C and Thiamine, and 40% Folic Acid. 

**MY VIEWPOINT:**

Now for the **good** news.  You won't have to worry about eating that 1,200 mg. Sodium because -- if you have high blood pressure -- the odds are against your surviving the sheer aggravation of trying to eat ***Marie Callender's Shrimp Scampi***.
