Easy & Healthy Shrimp Scampi

Posted on

My wife came across this recipe a couple of years ago and suggested I try it since I love shrimp so much. It’s a very healthy version of shrimp scampi and it’s amazingly easy to prepare.
I tend to go for the surf and turf when we go out to a restaurant for dinner. Most restaurants prepare shrimp scampi in a lot of butter and white wine, where this recipe has no butter and cuts the white wine with low sodium chicken broth.
So give this one a try. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to prepare, and how delicious it tastes!
