Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp Scampi for dinner tonight! This is my favorite meal that seems fancy but is actually really quick and easy to make. Today was really busy – 3 classes, a meeting, emails, laundry, dishes, and comforting a toddler who fell down a few times (she’s getting better at walking, which also means falling sometimes). Luckily we were both able to take an afternoon nap. Then I made this recipe in about 30 minutes while Brooklyn watched Sesame Street (thank goodness for Elmo!).

I found this recipe by Ina Garten a few months ago just by googling Shrimp Scampi. (The only thing I’ve changed is leaving out the lemon slices.) I’ve made it several times for company and it’s always a hit! There’s also a quick video so you can watch her make it:

I’ve found that the whole recipe makes enough for 4-5 people. For just me, my husband, and Brooklyn, half of the recipe is more than enough. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
