Shrimp, Shrimp and more Shrimp

Move over Bubba, DCDishes is about to tell you a little something about Shrimp Scampi! If you haven’t figured it out by now, or read any of my other posts, I love seafood. Shrimp used to be a dish I would avoid like the plague. I was such a weirdly picky eater as a child and every few months I’m finding more and more foods and flavors I would staunchly decline are actually a delight. This whole time I have been missing out, but better late than never, right? Luckily for me, shrimp was an early rediscovery and I haven’t turned back since.

The best shrimp is shrimp that’s on sale. What can I say? A girl loves a good bargain! Truth be told, I’m not a fan of doing all the prep work required for wild caught shrimp. The peeling, the deveining – it’s all too much for me.  Luckily my local grocery store had a little bit of a sale on peeled and deveined shrimp. Maybe because they were reaching an offseason, but let’s be honest- I wasn’t going to ask questions. Instead, I bought a little more shrimp for this fun, flavorful, and easy one-pot shrimp scampi!

Initially, I wanted this dish to be so simple. I really would have been fine with no veggies added at all. The choice to try a recipe that had a little something more was a good one. I had never had asparagus in a scampi dish and I’ve had a lot of variation when it comes to shrimp scampi dishes. This was maybe my second time making shrimp scampi, and from what I remember of the last dish, it wasn’t that tasty. This scampi with tomato and asparagus left me more than satisfied, so much so it’s now on my blog! Give it a try- I’m sure you won’t regret it.
