Old Bay & Lemon Shrimp Scampi

Old Bay & Lemon Shrimp Scampi

As a Marylander, there are two things I love, one being Old Bay, and the other being shrimp scampi. Old Bay & lemon shrimp scampi is my ultimate comfort food. I add an extra punch of lemon to this classic comforting meal, which I think elevates it just a bit 🙂 OOF this with a side of heirloom tomato salad? I’m dreaming.

This is my favorite “I’ve had a really crappy day” dinner. It’s so fast and the cleanup is easy. I love mine with some extra chopped parsley and Violife’s dairy free parmesan, served on the couch with a too-full class of crisp white. Violife is my new favorite dairy free cheese brand. They have captured the tartness of cheese that I feel like I had been missing in other brands. I’ve tried the parm, cheddar and feta and to be honest, they’re all really good!
