    CarolAnn's Note:

    My favorite way to saute fresh shrimp. This is so quick and simple. Serve over rice or angel hair pasta (I usually saute a little more garlic in olive oil and toss it with the pasta before topping with the shrimp). Yum!

      Simply delicious and made in quick time, The lemon zip is perfect. I used quite a bit less oil with no problem (about 1 1/2 tsps for 2 servings).You just can't beat classic flavors. It was served with Lemon Caper Orzo for a perfect pairing.
