You’re going to love this Lemon Garlic Shrimp Scampi!
What’s not to love with this combination of garlic, butter, olive oil, lemon and yes, even more garlic. What I especially like/love about this recipe (besides the garlic) is the parmesan bread crumb topping. This adds a totally yummy crunch factor to an already delicious dish.
