I love shrimp and look for any recipe that uses it. Shrimp scampi is one of the dishes that I loved my mother cooking for me as a child. With her Italian roots, it was always made perfectly. Her recipe was slightly more complicated than this version, which I have dubbed ‘The Beginner’s Scampi.’ It has a nice marinade to help cover up any accidental overcooking, which is very easy to do where shrimp is concerned. It also makes frozen shrimp taste amazing!Recipe
