Sage Brown Butter Shrimp Scampi

It’s well noted on the pages of Lemony Thyme that Sage Brown Butter is something I’m passionate about.  The best way to describe it…’sensual.’  Definition ‘sen-su-al’ adjective: “relating to or consisting in the gratification of the senses or the indulgence of appetite.”  It seemed like a natural way to build this Shrimp Scampi dish.
