15 Minute Shrimp Scampi

We enjoy eating Shrimp Scampi when we go out to eat but have never fixed it at home till this past weekend. I had frozen shrimp in the freezer, and pasta in the cabinet. I decided to find an easy recipe and create something tasty for our family dinner. I found this Emeril Lagasse recipe for shrimp scampi, made a few tweaks and started cooking.
