    Amber Dawn's Note:

    From the Cookbook Eating Well 500 Calorie Dinners. A refreshingly healthy twist to "Shrimp Scampi." My family loved this dish served with Quinoa. Note: the prep time can be cut down if you use peeled/deveined shrimp.

      I saw this and had to save it to make. It was every bit as good as I knew it would be by looking at the ingredients. This is a great alternative to other fattening dishes for shrimp, and I love that it is low in fat and calories! Don't overcook the shrimp. Served it up with brown rice pouring some of the sauce over the top, and we enjoyed it very much!
