Shrimp Scampi is an easy recipe that can be done from scratch for an easy week night dinner.
I’m adding in some spaghetti squash as well to make this a great low carb meal for the whole family!
Shrimp Scampi is one of the first things that I learned to make when I was younger – but I always used store bought scampi mix.
It was easy, tasty and something I couldn’t screw up!
And here’s a little tidbit – scampi is actually the name of a crustacean that looks like a large shrimp with lobster claws.
But in the states – its not easily found so shrimp has been switched out in the dish that we know out here.
I’m going off of what the internet says about this – so if you’re from outside the US I’d love to this is true!
Scampi sauce is simple enough that you shouldn’t be buying from the store.
its oil butter garlic and parsley base that on its one is going to make your shrimp taste great. Add in some wine lemon juice and a little crushed red pepper and you’re taking it to a whole new level
And if you’re not feeling wine, give chicken broth a shot instead!
And I don’t know about you but – 2020 did me dirty in the weight department. So instead of topping it off on a pasta like linguine, I’m going to be using some spaghetti squash to lower the carb intake
So if you’re doing a low carb diet like keto right now – This shrimp scampi recipe will be perfect for you
