A Favorite Recipe- Scampi Shrimp In A Luscious Butter Sauce

This recipe, shrimp scampi is a well loved dish in restaurants, but did you know that it is quick and simple to make at home as well? We southerners like our shrimp and shrimp scampi is one of the best. Shrimp served with a white wine and garlic butter sauce, what could be better? There are many variations of shrimp scampi, served alone, or often over pasta. This can be eaten either way.

The shrimp can be cooked in the butter if desired, rather than boiling it, if you prefer. The key to excellent shrimp, as with all seafood, is not to over cook it. Shrimp is done when it turns pink. This is very quick. Longer cooking times just toughen the shrimp. This is especially vital in this recipe, because you will be heating the shrimp again in the sauce at the end.
