Friday Feast - Paleo Meal Shrimp Scampi & Basil Broccolini

One of the quickest, easiest Primal Paleo meal we have done.  It was super fast, tasty, and great for a busy weeknight meal!  The Shrimp Scampi was simple and really delicious.  I'm a big fan of butter to cook with as it adds so much flavor to the shrimp.  I thought this would way too much parsley but it worked out great.  For seamless prep, I would steam the broccolini first while you get the Shrimp Scampi ready.  The only change I noted for our palettes was to add more basil to the broccolini.  Hope you all enjoy this as much as we did!
