I love Pinterest and have spent way too much time on it over the years. If I am searching for some holiday inspiration or clothing inspiration I tend to go to Pinterest first. I have tried a lot of recipes that I have found on Pinterest and liked most of them but hands down my favorite is Shrimp Scampi by Damn Delicious. Shrimp Scampi is a favorite dish of mine but I had a hard time finding a great recipe for it until I found this one.
The recipe is really easy to follow and I normally have all of the ingredients in the house. I have made it with fresh shrimp (trust me and buy the already peeled and deveined shrimp – saves a ton of time) and precooked frozen shrimp (which I always have in the freezer) and both work great.
One of the most important things to do when making this shrimp scampi recipe is to mise en place your ingredients. The recipe comes together quickly and you will not have time to prep ingredients as you cook. I missed one ingredient before when making the shrimp scampi and I had to rush to get it ready while I was cooking, it wasn’t pretty.
The results of this recipe are delicious every time, and I have made it a dozen or more times over the last year. I even made it over Christmas while I visiting my parents in Florida, using really fresh shrimp, so good! My sister says it’s one of her favorite things that I cook.
