Shrimp Scampi

The Mister fixed dinner tonight and it was delicious. First he infused olive oil with red chili flakes and Italian seasoning. Next he sautéed the shrimp. The secret is to do it quickly and not to overcook the shrimp — just a minute or two on each side until pink. Just after turning the shrimp, […]
