Creole Shrimp Scampi

Everybody loves their classic scampi, right? Fat, succulent shrimp sautéed in rich buttery, garlicky, lemony sauce with a splash of white wine, and topped with a sprinkling of parsley and parmesan. It’s perfect in itself! We cook it all the time.

Many scampi aficionados would scoff if you add or subtract anything to it. But at the Beisers’ we experiment with our classics all the time. A few years back, my husband tweaked it just a little by adding some extra Cajun flavors for one special dinner. It was AAAmazing! That was Valentines 2017… ❤ We want to share this recipe with you this year so you can try it this coming Friday!!
