Quick and Easy Shrimp Scampi

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by A Pinch of This ...

I searched before posting and this recipe is like several other recipes as far as ingredients but the cooking method is a little different. I leave the tails on for an appetizer and remove the tails to serve with pasta. I like it with rice noodles but it's great with any pasta.

We ate this until we were ready to pop! This recipe is indeed quick and easy and it was delicious. I made as posted and sprinkled with dill and parmesan just before serving. The only change I will make the next time is to reduce the garlic to 2 cloves, but that is just personal taste. I served this with recipe #294844. Everyone loved it! Made for "Pick a Chef Spring 2010". Thx for the great recipe!
