Ingredients

    1 T canola oil
    3/4 Lb uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined
    1 med green onion, diced
    1/4 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 tsp basil
    3/4 tsp parsley
    1 T lemon juice

In 10" skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Add shrimp and all ingredients. Cook 3-7 minutes (depends on size of shrimp, smaller shrimp cook faster.) Remove from heat; sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Serving size=1/4 of shrimp. To make dividing it up easier, spread out the shrimp and divide the pan into quarters, each quarter is a serving.
Tip: remember C & O...when the shrimp are shaped like a "C" they are cooked, when they look like an "O" they're overcooked.

  • I made this for supper tonight. Didn't have onions and forgot the cheese. I didn't miss either one. We have a seafood place up the road, and I always get the shrimp scampi. This one is better than theirs. Their rice, which is what I used, swims in butter. This one had a just enough. - 1/23/11
