Number of Servings: 4

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
    3 T parmesan cheese

Directions

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.
