Sheila's Supremely Simple Shrimp Scampi

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by JackieOhNo

I know, I know...there are a million recipes on here for Shrimp Scampi. Why should you try this one? Because it is so easy. There is no chopping garlic, etc. It comes out the same (perfect) every time, and is always a big hit, (although I would say it is not for the diet-conscious). I have been making scampi this way for almost 25 years, and while I have saved many other scampi recipes and am willing to try them, I just can't get past this one! I generally serve this with rice pilaf or linguine.

Fantastic shrimp dish. My husband and teens made dinner tonight and this was quite an impressive dish. We did not have fresh parsley, but dried worked fine (fresh would be excellent, of course). Flavor was terrific. They made rice, roasted asparagus and toast to accompany the shrimp. Great! We'll do it again!
