Malibu Shrimp Scampi

I LOVE shrimp scampi!! One day I was using my usual recipe and realized I was out of wine white. I was on the phone with my best friend, Tiffany trying to figure out what to use instead. She asked what clear alcohol I had on hand to possibly use. My first response was Malibu Rum and she said use it! This is now my favorite way and only way I’ll make it! The alcohol is cooked into so yes, children can eat it too and it is now a family favorite!!
