Spicy Island Shrimp

Submitted by: CHENIA

Introduction

This recipe was in a Taste of Home issue a few years back. I omitted the butter and used olive oil for a healthier version. It is so yummy, I have to share it! Pair it with some brown rice, and you have a great low fat high protein dinner! This recipe was in a Taste of Home issue a few years back.
