A bottle of wine on the counter

Now, I’m no wine connoisseur or wine cooking expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I believe one of the keys to a good shrimp scampi is the wine. My first rule of thumb is going with a dry or crisp white wine – my go to is typically Pinot Grigio. My second rule of thumb is to go with something you like to drink (or your partner likes to drink). Michele loves this ‘Mommy’s Time Out’ from Trebbiano.

Whatever it is, save the real expensive stuff you have and cook with a good white which is a bit more on the affordable side.
