Shrimp-Scampi

Shrimp Scampi literally means "shrimp shrimp". This meal means romance to many people, especially as they are looking for romantic meals for two for Valentines Day, anniversaries, or other celebrations. We really think it's nice to have a little seafood, and who can argue with seafood soaked in butter - not the healthiest recipe, but hey it's a special occasion and you're allowed to splurge a little.

The Recipe for Shrimp Scampi below is a great recipe for two as it is the perfect union of shrimp and pasta, of savory and tangy, and will have your beaux asking for more.
