Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp Scampi

Last night I whipped a pot of my favorite shrimp scampi and my entire house devoured it so I figured it was only right that I share it with you all.  No long story about it, it’s just amazing and the rest of the world needs to give it a try lol. If you really want to spice it up and look fancy you can add in some scallops and lobster meat.  You can also use your preferred pasta or if you need to make a low carb and low calorie version you can bake spaghetti squash and toss it up with that.  The only rule I have when making this scampi is to use a good white wine. So the rule is if you wouldn’t  drink it don’t cook with it, especially with a dish like this where wine is one of the key players.  Other than that have fun with it, and try not to eat the entire pot in one night like we did! lol
