Ciao Bella Lemony Shrimp Scampi

This is not the typical shrimp scampi because it's light and not smothered in butter. The lemon and sherry are what give this a wonderful flavor.

Oh, and a little bit of garlic goes a long way. Too much, and you don't taste the other flavors in the dish. It can also make everything bitter.

Enjoy!
