I love shrimp scampi. But sometimes you may not have any fresh herbs or garlic! This easy shrimp recipe uses usual scampi ingredients such as lemon, butter, and white wine, but utilizes items from the pantry for the garlic and herbs. Of course, nothing beats fresh herbs, this easy shrimp recipe is still very delicious with the dried herbs.

We usually just eat a bowl of this easy shrimp recipe for dinner and pair it with a simple arugula salad and nice bottle of dry white wine like Sauvignon Blanc.
This recipe is quick and easy to make for a healthy weeknight meal since the amount of food prep is minimal.
