1/11 Photos of Mediterranean Scampi
TOOLBELT DIVA's Note:
Who does not like Scampi. You have had Scampi the usual method, with loads of garlic and extra virgin olive oil... Now have Scampi my Med-way, and you won't go back.... Have plenty of baguette to soak up all the sauce... So good, you will be sorry when it is all gone. Winning Recipe Entry, RSC#7.
