Shrimp Scampi

This is an updated version of a recipe I posted in August. This is my attempt at trying to duplicate a shrimp scampi dish we had recently in S. Louisiana. I took parts of 3 different recipes & this is what I came up with. The original recipe we ate had a lot of sauce which I'm not sure how to prepare yet. It was a thin sauce that wasn't just butter. It's pretty darn good!!
