Recipe Of The Day: Shrimp Scampi

Beau Gustafson

When you need dinner in a hurry, you can't go wrong with shrimp scampi. This simple dish of pasta topped with quickly sauteed shrimp makes a meal that everyone is always happy with -- and it comes together in no time. While there are many variations on shrimp scampi, we're fans of the ones that use lots of garlic and butter.

This shrimp scampi recipe isn't shy with the butter or garlic, but it also adds in lemon and pepper. It has a great fresh flavor that tops a bowl of orzo perfectly. And better yet, it takes only 10 minutes to prep.
