So growing up I usually requested stuffed shells for my birthday. I probably did this to my teens. When I got I would request shrimp scampi. My mom made amazing shrimp scampi. Sometimes we would go out to eat a local restaurant and I would order shrimp scampi. This restaurant used to serve it with rice, but down the road they switched it and started serving it with pasta. I remember my mom always ask if they could make ours with rice, which they did. To this day I prefer my shrimp scampi with rice.
This dish is really easy to make. Peeling and deveining the shrimp takes the most time. Cooking shrimp doesn’t take long. I love the bread crumb topping. It adds the perfect touch.
