Lightened Up Shrimp Scampi

March 27, 2010

I love shrimp scampi because it tastes so good and it is a nice quick dinner. It also goes great with a glass of white wine. The thing I don’t like is how the butter goes from my lips to my hips. So I decided to lighten a classic recipe up and substitute chicken broth […]
