(From Everyday Food) Scampi minus the butter and wine. Keep a bag of frozen (raw) shrimp in the freezer and you can have a quick and easy weekday meal on hand. (It just takes a few minutes to quick thaw the shrimp, follow the directions on the bag.) I always have a jar of minced garlic in the fridge and I often sub bottled lemon juice for fresh. I serve with steamed broccoli and a salad. You could also serve with a side of pasta, rice, or garlic bread.

Directions

  1. Set broiler rack 4 inches from heat.

  3. Sprinkle with oil and garlic and season generously with salt and pepper. Add 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes. Toss to coat. Arrange shrimp in a single layer.
  4. Broil 3-4 minutes, until opaque throughout. Sprinkle with lemon juice, toss to combine. Serve immediately.
