Shrimp scampi is one of the quick and easy recipes for fast, yet delicious and impressive weekday meals. Just toss shrimp in a white wine, garlic, parsley, chili flakes, and pasta. You’ll have the most satisfying dinner ready in less than a half hour. I use fresh shrimp. I never use frozen shrimp. I buy fresh shrimp, peel, devein. Yes, it sounds like a lot of work, but once you taste fresh shrimp, you don’t feel like going back. Fresh shrimp is so soft, that it hits the spot every time. When the week is busy, time is short and you want to make home-cooked meals for yourself or family, pasta is the one.
Maybe you are a mommy, a daddy, a caring spouse, a good friend, a date, who need easy recipes to get thru a satisfactory dinner on the table.
