Shrimp scampi, the mere mention of the name conjures up succulent shrimp in a buttery, garlicky and lemony sauce made with white wine and herb. If there is one shrimp recipe that you can make at home, this shrimp scampi recipe is probably it.
From prep to finish, this garlic butter shrimp takes only 15 minutes. I usually get peeled, deveined, and tail-on shrimp from the store.
The shrimps are ready to be cooked as soon as you thaw them. I usually just soak them in water for about 5 minutes and then drain them.
While you are thawing the shrimp, prep the garlic and Italian flat parsley. Heat up a skillet (cast-iron preferred) and start cooking.
In 15 minutes, everything will be done and you have a restaurant-quality shrimp scampi that tastes a lot more flavorful, cheaper, and delicious. Enjoy!
