S/C/G: 239/218.2/150

Height: 5'7"

Default Shrimp Scampi

1 1/2 pounds fresh or thawed frozen shrimp, peeled and deveined
3 tbsp trans-fat free margarine (I use ICBINB spread)
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (I used dried)
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Rinse shrimp under cold water and pat dry well. Season with salt & pepper.
Heat margarine and garlic in large skillet over med. heat until melted & bubbling, 1-2 min. Add shrimp and stir to coat. Add lemon juice, parsley, and red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimp are pink, about 2 min. Don't overcook or the shrimp will be tough! Remove from heat. Season with salt & pepper; serve hot.

Makes 4 servings

I usually have this with copious amounts of steamed broccoli.
