Shrimp Scampi is an Italian classic with an American twist. Originally, this dish was made with scampi, which are tiny crustaceans called langoustines. However, the American version swaps the scampi for shrimp, but keeps both in the name of the dish. With this recipe, you can see how easy it is to make shrimp scampi right at home but with a healthy twist!
