Shrimp Scampi

by Laura

Shrimp is always a great option to use when you need dinner in a hurry. It cooks up in a matter of minutes. Not all of my family loves shrimp but I decided to try a new dish on them. The dish I decided to try is a classic shrimp dish called Shrimp Scampi.

This recipe comes together in about 15 minutes and is prepared completely on the stove top. So it makes this a perfect dish for summer. You won’t have to heat up your house to cook dinner with this one.

This dish is also very light which is something I crave when I am looking for a summer meal. Pair this with a nice fresh tossed salad. Not all of my family loved the shrimp but they did eat the pasta which only meant more shrimp for those of us that do love shrimp!
