Yummy! When I'm in a hurry and don't want to fire up the grill I just pan fry the shrimp.

Made this over the week end and it was fantastic! It made a HUGE amount. It could easily serve 6-10 people. It was even better the next day. Only change made was we added kalamata olives to the salad. Thanks for sharing Homegirl!
