Garlic and butter. I ask you, is there anything better?
This dish is so summery and light and comes together in under 20 minutes.
There are several variations to this. A traditional shrimp scampi recipe will have butter along with white wine and can be either baked in the oven or done on the stove.
For this recipe, I wanted to keep it simple and in one dish. So using my handy cast iron skillet, I melted some organic butter and sautéed the shrimp for 2-3 minutes. They were removed and kept warm while the garlic, chicken stock, lemon juice and parsley were added.
I chose to serve these succulent buttery shrimp over rice because my daughter is gluten intolerant. However, there is enough butter to go beautifully over angel hair pasta. You can serve this with a big Caesar salad and crusty bread for a great summer meal.
