Broiled Shrimp Scampi / Rice Pilaf with Tomatoes


This recipe is awesome and unbelievably easy! Broiled Shrimp Scampi is also good served over pasta.

Below is a great recipe (from the Dean & Deluca Cookbook) – a bit fancier but very delicious. It preserves the tuna flavor and is loaded with crunchy healthy vegetables. Read the rest of this entry »
