Garlic Shrimp Scampi

Garlic Shrimp Scampi- an easy weeknight meal that's absolutely mouthwatering!

The theme of my last few recipes have been supppaahhh fast, easy, and delicious. Let’s keep that trend going with some Garlic Shrimp Scampi, sound good? ;)

Things have been a little more quiet on the blog side of thing because ya girl has been busy. My photography business has taken off and I’ve been in the process of bringing on other photographers to work on my brand (!!!) along with keeping up with the normal busy season of wedding photography that is the summer. Crazy, exciting… I LOVE IT. Work feels like a dream come true and I wake up every morning stoked to get to work and answer emails. Here’s to hoping that love doesn’t wear off!

But anyways, let’s get back to the food side of things! I love garlic. I love shrimp. I loooove pasta. So when it came to thinking about what I should make for dinner a few nights ago, this recipe was a no-brainer. UGH. You guys. It’s so good it almost hurts. There’s something magical about cooking garlic in a combination of butter, olive oil, and wine and eating this shrimp scampi makes my soul happy.
