Kittencal's Easy Lemon-Garlic Sauteed Shrimp

"This is a simple yet delicious shrimp dish, serve it alone with a crusty French baguette bread to dip in the sauce and a side salad, or serve it over cooked fettuccine or rice --- make certain to completely dry the shrimp with paper towels before using in the recipe, feel free to add in a pinch of your favorite dried herbs and omit the fresh parsley --- servings will yield 3-4 but may easily be increased."

    Well, we sure loved it! Simple and delicious. Served over fresh spinach with the recommended crusty bread. Just can't go wrong with these ingredients and flavor - thanks for a winner!
  2. Merlot did it again, Kittencal. ANOTHER great recipe from you. This was soooo easy to make and VERY delicious. I served this over rice. The cayenne pepper added just the right about of "zip" to this dish. Thanks again for another great tasting meal.

    Really delicious and so easy to make! Fast to put together, too. I made this for a quiet dinner for just the handsome hubby and me - a nice, dry Riesling wine fit the bill perfectly for the recipe and was an excellent accompaniment to the dinner. Served the shrimp over angelhair pasta, with a salad and fresh French bread rolls. Another winner, Kitten, thank you!

    This was very good. I would have liked the lemon to show through a bit more, but maybe it was just my lemon. I did add a little more garlic as well. Simple to make.
