I picked up this recipe a couple of years ago at the seafood counter of my local grocery store. I've decided to post it here so I never lose it. It is so easy and quick to prepare but with a ton of flavor. I think the Old Bay Seasoning in the key. Of course, you must love garlic too. Enjoy!
- 1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1⁄4 cup olive oil
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
- 1 teaspoon parsley flakes
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- Heat oil in large skillet, add garlic; saute 1 minute or until tender.
- Add shrimp and OLD BAY seasoning; saute 3 to 5 minutes or until shrimp turn pink.
- Stir in lemon juice and parsley flakes.
- Serve over cooked pasta or rice.
Excellent and healthy with a few changes. For four people I doubled the shrimp, cut the oil in half and doubled everything else. Next time I'll cut the shrimp into thirds so that there's shrimp in every bite. I served this over whole wheat pasta and we loved it! The Old Bay Seasoning and the lemon are tasty and essential. Serve with a vegetable or salad. This was so easy -- I've already gotten requests to make it again! Thanks Love2Experiment for a great recipe!
This was good. I tripled the recipe as my family loves shrimp. They were good hot and cold. I didn't add the parsley and they smelled so good- I forgot to add the lemon. Will make again. Made for Fall PAC 2007.
