Okay, you brought home some shrimp from the store, now what? Two words: SHRIMP SCAMPI. Time to tackle the restaurant favorite we always order, yet never attempt to make at home. There's no reason to drop a lot of cash on this dish when it's a cinch to whip up in your own kitchen. Cooking shrimp literally takes just a few minutes. The best part? They'll tell you when they're done by turning pink! You can serve them with pasta, rice, or even over a salad. Pro tip: Wild shrimp have much better flavor than farmed and are a more sustainable choice.
