If you love shrimp and you love garlic then you will absolutely adore shrimp scampi. There are hundreds of different variations of shrimp scampi and you can’t really go wrong. But, why have good when you can have great? Here’s our recipe for shrimp scampi that really just hits the spot. Don’t say we didn’t warn you 🙂
First, start off by cooking shrimp on a skillet with a little olive oil until it slowly changes to a pink color. Once it is thoroughly cooked, set it aside to cool while the sauce is being made.

The key ingredient for the sauce is garlic, garlic, and more garlic! After you’ve got that main ingredient covered, add a little touch of wine, lemon juice or lemon slices, and Italian seasoning.
Sauté all the ingredients together for about 5 minutes. Then, treat yourself to a small taste of the sauce to make sure it is blended to your liking.
*Note* When the garlic turns into a brownish kind of color, then you know it is ready.

Finally, add in the shrimp to the skillet again and mix the shrimp around with the sauce. Top it off with a dash of parsley and some grated cheese. Take your first bite of happiness – you’ll never want to go back to fried shrimp again! Add your choice of rice or pasta to the side to complete your meal.
