Tarragon Lime Shrimp Scampi
Spouse and I are hanging out at home today while the kids are out of town visiting their grandparents. Determined to have a relaxing afternoon, watching movies and generally doing nothing, neither of us was much in the mood to cook but not really enamoured with the idea of take-out delivery either. This recipe is the perfect compromise; a fuss-free, totally delicious version of shrimp scampi that we literally had on the table in under 15 minutes. That's quicker than any delivery I've ever ordered!
I think this version of a classsic shrimp scampi would be as at home at your finest dinner party as it would be as a workday supper. Well worth trying.

4 tablespoons butter
