Shrimp Scampi


My family loves seafood, and this Shrimp Scampi recipe is one of their favorites! It's a really easy recipe to follow, and it tastes fantastic. The sauce is cooked with garlic, lemon, parsley, and some chili flakes to give it the extra kick. Serve up the fresh shrimps and the tasty garlic sauce with some of your favorite pasta for a wonderful and complete meal.

1 Tbsp Breadcrumbs
8 Tbsp Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
3 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
