Shrimp Scampi Ala Dawn

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Dawnab

Pico de Gallo adds a flavor to this dish that is unique, the garlic and jalapeños blend very nicely. I purchase the pico de gallo in the vegetable section of our supermarket, but there are several good recipes here on Zaar also

Nice dish. I made this exactly as per the recipe. We found that the sauce didn't thicken much and at first seemed rather bland. Once the dish sat for a few minutes and the flavours of the sauce, the pico de gallo and the lemon melded, it was very good. I would suggest letting the sauce cool down for 5 minutes or so before serving atop the pasta.
