Garlic Shrimp Scampi

This is such a super simple yet delicious recipe for Shrimp Scampi, it takes 20 minutes from start to finish and is an amazing meal.  I used 3 Brand new Cutco knives I got from my awesome friend Gabriel who is working to pay his way through college and could use all the support he can get.  Even if he just gives you a presentation he makes some money, well he is good and got me and the knives are awesome.  Do me a favor and go toss him some love on his Facebook page too and if you are in southern California keep him in mind :)

  1. I just made this for my husband and I and when I put that first bite in my mouth, I thought I was eating the real thing. It was SO delicious and I am so excited at the discovery of spaghetti squash lol. A note, I did use coconut oil instead of ghee bc I couldn’t find any and it was delicious. Would’ve preferred the ghee but coconut oil works in a pinch.

  2. Wow. This looks wonderful. We’re on a low carb high fat diet which I think of as flammable paleo. I’ve tweaked this to get the ratios in line with what we need to keep burning fat (instead of carbs) and carry off the toxins we’re working hard to get rid of. Can hardly wait to try it out. Scampi has always been one of my favorites, and now it looks like I can have it again! Yum!
