Shrimp Scampi (a lighter version)

An adaptation from The Italian-American Cookbook. The smaller the shrimp the longer the prep time! I learned that the hard way years ago when I was having guest for dinner and they arrived long before I was finished peeling and deveining the shrimp.

    This recipe is just what I was looking for - a simple and light version of scampi! Just made it now so it's all ready for when we get back from the lake. Sauteed up some green beans the same way and will have it over brown and wild rice. Used cilantro because I didn't have any fresh parsley on hand and it gave it a nice zing. Thanks! Maybe I'll whip up some peach salsa to have with it too. Thanks!

    Awesome! My kids loved it! I made a mistake and didn't make enough juice to add angel hair pasta but even so this was soooo DELICIOUS! Even my daughter asked me in an uncertain voice "was this healthy?" Whoda thunk something tasting this good would NOT be bad for you!

    Great flavor, easy to make, nice and filling for very low calories! How can you go wrong! I served with asparagus and angel hair pasta.
