The Perfect Sauce

My girlfriend and I are celebrating our three year anniversary and I wanted to make something special. I want to make shrimp scampi. How do you make the shrimp scampi sauce? I'm working with a medium size budget so anything is possible. Thanks for comments and replies.
as much as jfood loves garten, and that is a very good recipe, jfood would tell you to be careful on the burning of the garlic, happens real quick and can ruin a good scampi. jfood would modify her recipe as follows. Instead of placing diced garlic in the butter-oil add 2-3 whole pieces and let them turn to a light to gold broan and then remove. you now have the butter-oil with a nice garlicy flavor. Add the shrimp and a little minced garlic together and saute for her 5 minute. If you add the garlic first and then bring to brown and then add the shrimp for another 5 minutes chances are the garlic will burn.
BTW - get some good bread to soak up the sauce, some roses and a little champagne.
Thank you all for the comments. The big day is this Thursday, I plan to take all of your comments into consideration. If any of you have any other comments, advice, or recipes please feel free to give them, I know how to cook but I'll never turn down advice or comments.
