Crab Scampi with Capellini

Posted by Courtney Lopez on

I love anything with butter. 

That includes starches, and seafood.

My husband on the other hand is very picky when it comes to seafood.  If it’s not Salmon, shrimp, or tuna he wants no part of it.  Until I made this Crab scampi.
I was pretty persistent telling my hubby he had to try this.  I couldn’t let him not know the amazing flavors of this scampi.   Let’s just say hubby finished his serving, and he loved it!.

On to the recipe:

Crab Scampi

2-3 Servings
