From another website. This recipe uses frozen pre-cooked shrimp and they were great. Kids and DH liked this a lot. I served this with linguine.

  1. Heat oil in a medium-hot skillet and add garlic. Let that cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Now add the shrimp and sprinkle with the cayenne pepper. Cook, moving them in the pan for 5 minutes.

I cut the olive oil in half, and didn't have any scallions. It seemed very thin, so I added 2 tbsp. flour at the end to thicken the sauce. I served it with penne and broccoli. Out of 4 of us, 1 thought it was a bit too spicy, 2 loved it, and 1 who doesn't like shrimp loved it. A quick, tasty keeper!

Very tasty, and very easy to make. I halved the oil and didn't have lime juice on hand (wish that I had!). Thanks!
