One of my favorite dishes in the world and one that my Italian father-in-law Tony loves equally as well–if I had to guess–is Shrimp Scampi. Am I right, Tony?
This version is relatively easy to prepare –and most of the work happens in your oven. I love recipes that I can prepare pretty much in advance and then throw in my oven when my guests arrive. This recipe was inspired from a recipe in the Barefoot Contessa’s Back to Basics cookbook–the author Ina Garten has THE best recipes ever!
I have cooked up this recipe twice in the past two weeks….it’s really that good.
I used gluten free rice bread crumbs (wheat tolerant folks can use regular bread crumbs), lemon, garlic infused oil, a bit of butter, parsley, rosemary, salt and pepper. Simple. Yummy. Yay!
Double the portion and serve for the holidays. Serious yum.
