15-Minute Succulent Shrimp Scampi Recipe Is Easy, Fast & Flavorful

Shrimp scampi is a classic dish every cook needs in their recipe arsenal. It sounds fancy, but this shrimp scampi dinner recipe is really easy to make. The tender shrimp are cooked in a skillet with butter, olive oil, garlic, white wine (or chicken broth), parsley and lemon. For a little heat, add some crushed red pepper flakes. Delicious! And it's ready in about 15 minutes. 

Serve this easy shrimp recipe with a saladvegetable and crusty bread. Roasted asparagus and broccoli are my favorites to serve with this seafood dish. Pack the leftovers for lunch the next day.
