Shrimp Scampi Recipe

We were ready for something on the light side so I decided on this Shrimp Scampi Recipe.  This is a simple recipe that doesn’t have a lot of ingredients, but don’t let that fool you, it is delicious. The lemon juice goes naturally with the seafood enhancing the flavor of the shrimp. My Family loved this Shrimp Scampi Recipe and I am sure I will be preparing it again in the near future. Enjoy
