Recipe by Manda
This is a dish I threw together last night when I wanted to use up some frozen shrimp and was having a major garlic craving. I raided the crisper, busted out the spices, and this is what became of it. Quite pretty and tasty. This is something a little different from regular shrimp scampi, and definitely something I would serve to guests. Next time I might try broccoli in place of the asparagus (depending on what I find in the fridge:) Prep time does not include peeling and deveining shrimp.
- 1 lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1⁄4 cup olive oil
- 4 tablespoons margarine or 4 tablespoons butter
- 4 cloves garlic, minced

- 1 small yellow bell peppers or 1 small red bell pepper, cut into bite-size pieces
- 1 1⁄2-2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
- ground salt and black pepper
