Introduction: Garlic Shrimp Scampi

About: I have been sewing and crafting for several years, my children are grown so now I have lots of time to be creative. I enjoy photography, cooking, cake decorating, painting and sharing my projects with others.

If you love garlic like I do, you'll want to make this tasty dish!
