Simple Shrimp Scampi

I love to whip up this dish for a romantic dinner with my husband, or when guest drop by unexpectedly. It’s simple, delicious and elegant.  To make this dish gluten-free, just substitute gluten-free pasta. You can find this recipe in The Plumeria Café.  The Plumeria Café is featured in my new novel, “Lady in the Window” (in stores May 9, 2017, from SelectBooks, pre-order at Barnes & Noble or Amazon).

For this recipe, I used fresh herbs and citrus from our farm!
