"I love shrimp scampi, but was looking for something lighter and colorful to make for dinner tonight. I had the shrimp on hand, and a few other things, and the rest just came together :) This turned out very light, and was great with garlic bread."

Followed your ingredient list on down, although I did use a little more than half a pound of fresh asparagus that I steamed until just fork tender, AND I used a full pound of shrimp! Absolutely delicious, & your recipe is a keeper! Thanks for sharing it!
