As I mentioned Wednesday I recently harvested my garlic scapes. Although I froze most of the garlic scape pesto I made, I used some  of the scapes to make Garlic Scape Scampi. The combination of the garlic and shrimp was delicious!

The ingredients were simple; I had everything on hand except the shrimp.
