Blue Ribbon Recipe
Shrimp scampi is a recipe that sounds super fancy (and they charge a fortune for at a restaurant), but it's very easy to make. The delicate shrimp are bathed in a buttery garlic sauce. You really taste the paprika, cayenne, and celery salt of Old Bay seasoning. Crushed pepper does give the dish a nice kick of spice. Shrimp scampi is typically served with linguine, but we loved the white rice. It really soaks up the butter sauce. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Shrimp Scampi
- Optional - I sometimes stir in a can of French cut green beans which is always delicious.
- Note: If you double this recipe do not double the Old Bay or red pepper. If you do, it will be a very hot and spicy dish.
