RECIPE

Healthy Shrimp Scampi

This dinner is definitely a favorite of mine. One it is delicious. Two it’s shrimp. Three it’s so easy to make. I could make this every week for dinner and wouldn’t get sick of it. I use shrimp from a local seafood guy, because he has the best shrimp. I think it is so important to use good ingredients and I love shopping local. My seafood guy is the best.

I learned years ago to use pasta water for a lot of dishes. Maybe from Giadi on the Food Network? Not sure if that is where I learned it, but I will say I am so glad I did. It makes a huge difference in so many of my pasta dishes. It adds a lot of flavor and not the calories. I only add a little bit of white and only 1 tbsp of butter!!  I add a little bit of red pepper to my recipe, but you don’t have to. This dish isn’t lacking any flavor.

Top this dish with a little bit of fresh Parmesan cheese and little bit of fresh parsley.

That’s the Dish from my Kitchen to your Kitchen 💕
