The Ultimate Shrimp Scampi

At least that's what Tyler Florence claims.

Tonight I made Tyler's recipe for the Ultimate Shrimp Scampi. All the recipes from his new show, Tyler's Ultimate, sound absolutely amazing. I can't wait to try his meatloaf and fajitas. Yum!

I have to say, this recipe was pretty good, although I've always made shrimp scampi pretty much the same way. The recipe called for a pound of pasta, but I think a half pound would better showcase the flavors of the shallot, garlic and lemon juice. All in all, though, a success.

On a related note - did you notice the new plates? We took a trip to IKEA yesterday and got 12 place settings. I'm a very happy camper!
Pin It!


  1. The new plates are purty!

    IKEA rocks! That's where we got all our plates too!

  2. Thanks!!

    It took us literally 5 years to find plates we liked. We could never agree on a pattern we both liked and if we did manage to find something, it was waaaaay too expensive. Then I started this blog and realized plain white plates were the way to go, so off we went to IKEA. That place is like Disney World. We love it!
