This easy Shrimp Scampi is one of my favorite 20 minute recipes. It’s easy enough for a busy weeknight but fancy enough to serve to company.
Do you have one of those go-to meals that you ALWAYS order when you go to a restaurant? My husband does.
His go-to meal is shrimp scampi. He orders it whenever we are at a restaurant that offers it. I think he uses it as a baseline to determine if the restaurant is up to snuff.
If we’re at a seafood place, he orders shrimp scampi. If we’re at a steak place, shrimp scampi. It’s his go-to dish.
So of course I have to have a good shrimp scampi recipe that I can make at home.
This recipe is one of my favorite seafood recipes. I love it because the shrimp is succulent and tender and the sauce…well that’s pure perfection.
I love the bright, garlicky sauce. It’s perfect for a big old hunk of crusty Italian bread. I usually double the sauce portion of the recipe so we can have plenty to sop up at the end.
This recipe is also my go-to Christmas Eve dinner. I like it because I can easily make a big batch in no time in my biggest skillet. This way, I’m not spending my time in the kitchen cooking instead of with my guests.
I always have shrimp in the freezer ready for this easy recipe. It’s definitely a keeper!
