This Shrimp Scampi with Linguine recipe is one of my favorite ways to eat shrimp. I even make this recipe low carb by substituting the pasta with edamame pasta, almond flour fettuccine or even black bean pasta.

What’s the best part about this Shrimp Scampi with Linguine recipe? The sauce! The secret is definitely in the sauce.
