Shrimp Scampi

This is my rendition of the classic Italian dish.  This comes together in minutes and easily impresses.  Don’t skip the butter at the end in the interest in saving calories because at 40 calories (or 10 calories per person) you can’t beat the richness and flavour it adds.http://lisagcooks.com/lisa-g-news/shrimp-scampi/...more
