Mediterranean Prawns

Submitted by: PIXIESTIX6669

Introduction

Since I'm single, this dish yields about 4 meals (around 7-9 shrimp per serving, as I tend to chow down on shellfish)...the marinaded shrimp lasts about 5 days in the fridge, and is very versatile...I toss them in with salad veggies, mix them with whole wheat pasta, or alone with sides...they make a quick protein fix after a busy day...
