I love sauteed shrimp. AND, I was in need of a few more calories after our trip to Italy.
I think I packed on a good 10 pounders. I'm serious, it was getting ridiculous with the gelato folks. Even I was getting embarrassed eating it because I had eaten so much. Every time I saw a sign saying gelato I was darting for the shoppe. I'm starting a work out program today so last night was like my last "real" supper. So, I made one of my favorite dishes, sauteed shrimp. Here's how ya do it and it is sooooooo easy!
start with peeling some large shrimp. I couldn't find any REALLY large shrimp so I jut had to make due with these. These really weren't even worth de-veining.
Melt a stick of butter. 1/2 if you like less butter
Throw in some chopped green onions and saute for about a minute
Then dump in the shrimp
Saute those babies for about a minute or two
When they're nice and pink squeeze in two lemons
and about 1/2 a cup of white wine. Or more if you like. You can also use sherry. I really like the sherry better but couldn't find any. Also, I thickened up the sauce with a wonderful item called "Wondra".
It should be in your cabinet,,,,it's a must. It's kind of a light flour/cornstarch mixture that you can just throw in right on top and mix in to thicken up a sauce. It doesn't lump up at all.
Pardon me for not following the food pryamid. But "W" wanted some brown rice (boil in a bag) and baked sweet potatoes (straight from the bag)
It was a yummy EZ meal!!!
have a wonderful day y'all!
