Cooking My Way to Skinny - Shrimp Scampi

What do you do with left over Chardonnay from the Wrap Party?

Easy.

You make shrimp scampi.

I really don't have a recipe. I just tossed a bunch of stuff in a skillet.

Let's see - I added:
low-fat margarine
white wine
lemon juice
olive oil
peas
shallots
garlic
lemon slices
parsley
shrimp

No lie and I cooked it until it was done.

Oh, wait - let's name the ingredients in the order in which they went into the pot:

margarine
olive oil
shallots
garlic
white wine
lemon juice
lemon wedges
peas 
shrimp

Then I tossed it all with whole grain angel hair pasta!

Give it a try - happy cooking!

shrimp scampi is one of fav dishes to eat, but i've never made it at home go figure. i'll pretty much eat anything with shrimp, now that i'm thinking about it.

anywhoo, i might surprise the make and fix this for him (minus the peas Yuck!), light a candle and call it romance :)

Oh... was on €he Goddess blog and she made your chinese food recipes.. her looked REALLY good. I guess your recipes ARE really easy. :)

cool poem I came across for Black History Month :

FROM DUSK TILL DAWN

Every morning we awake in haste
Not knowing what might take place

Past generations headed in one direction
As if they were all just a mere reflection

No longer are we knaves on a plantation
But we continue to work with dedication

We are now filled with anticipation
Since we are in sight of our new destination

Our children now join with others and sing
All because of a man named King

We have leaders among us with the same mission
But none of this would of been possible without a vision

Our hearts blaze within us like a fire
Because of our aspirations, dreams, and desires

These desires we see with clarity
What we seek is prosperity

Every night we lay our heads down
Thanking our Maker for blessings that abound
By David L.

I love to cook and I 'm always inventing dishes or putting my own twist to things! I happened to log and came to your page tonite and saw you had shrimp scampi and that's exactly what I was making. I tried most of your version but added a few things..it turned out very good and light!

TavoLini said...

Darius, you make it all look so EASY!!

I love how green peas make their way into so many dishes--I keep a bag of them in my freezer and am always forgetting to toss them in!

lisaiscooking said...

Love the addition of the peas. Looks delish!
