Herb Shrimp Scampi Recipe Notes:

*Depending on the size of the shrimp, cooking times can vary. Cook until pink all the way through.
We usually just eat a bowl of this shrimp scampi recipe for dinner and pair it with a Simple Arugula Salad or steamed broccoli, and and nice bottle of dry white wine like Sauvignon Blanc. This would also pair well with my Roasted Lemon Garlic Parmesan Romanesco recipe. If you are not watching your carbs, you will love dipping some Italian bread in the sauce or serving over pasta.
This recipe is quick and easy to make for a healthy weeknight meal since the amount of food prep is minimal.
