shrimp scampi paleo

This is one of my favorites in terms of speed-to-ready and freshness. Before I was diagnosed with UC  (Ulcerative Colitis) and was still able to have dairy, making shrimp scampi was a weekly routine for me. With the invention of theVegetti (seriously, get this – it works!) my mind was opened up to a whole new possibility of recipes that I could reinvent. Naturally, Shrimp Scampi was one of them 🙂
