Easy Shrimp Scampi


We don’t eat a ton of seafood, but every now and then a yummy shrimp dish sounds so good. On Sunday we made this yummy shrimp ccampi dish that was so easy to put together. We’re talking 15 minutes from start to finish. This recipe also uses less butter than a restaurant would use for shrimp scampi. So we ended up eating less calories with this one! Win!
