2 Minute Shrimp Scampi

One of my goals for 2015 is to cook more at home in order to save money and to eat healthier. Also to encourage myself to be less lazy. I've been looking for simple recipes, ones with few ingredients and quick prep times, that taste delicious. I found this shrimp scampi recipe while browsing online. The recipe is easily halved to serve 1, but I feel 12 shrimp is too small a portion for one person and that the original 24 shrimp are more suited for a single serving. 2 min shrimp scampi 1 ellatronic.com
