Typical shrimp scampi is made with garlic, butter, lemon, and white wine. I switched things up a bit for this recipe, because cooking is all about making changes. Using lime instead of lemon adds a super fresh twist, and cilantro is just one of my favorite herbs. Other than that, the recipe is pretty true to the traditional.
You man serve this cilantro lime shrimp on its own as an appetizer, but it’s also the perfect thing to add to pasta for a full meal. The buttery sauce pairs perfectly with linguine noodles, and creates an amazing shrimp scampi pasta dish. I’d eat this up any night of the week, and I especially love it for nice date nights at home. It’s simple, delicious, and super easy to make!
