We love shrimp. The whole family does. But we don't eat it too often. We go to Red Lobster once a year for all you can eat shrimp and then have the occasional shrimp basket at Culvers. I never make it. Weird, huh.
This month for The Secret Recipe Club, I was assigned Danielle's blog Hugs & CookiesXOXO. Now, if you're familiar with Danielle's blog, you'll know that she has the most fabulous treats. Her pictures are completely mouthwatering. I just went back there again and saw Deep Fried Snickers Bars. We have a private joke around here, every time I make something really healthy, the family says, "I'll bet deep fried snickers bars are better!"
drooled looked at tons of Danielle's tasty treats. Then I saw her Scrumptious Shrimp That Will Knock Your Socks Off!! The title alone just grabbed me! I knew right away that it was high time that I made shrimp scampi for the family.
This was super easy to make and the whole family loved it. My shrimp loving son probably ate half of it and continues to request that I make more. She also has a Coconut Shrimp that looks amazing.
