Ingredients
  • 7 ounces thawed or fresh peeled deveined uncooked shrimp
  • Cooking spray (we prefer Smart Balance)
  • 5-6 large garlic cloves crushed and chopped
  • 2 cups Imagine Chicken broth (about 1 cup for deglazing, and 1 cup for the sauce)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Simple Girl bouillon
  • 1 teaspoon of white wine vinegar OR fresh lemon juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon/1 capful Stacey Hawkins Skinny Scampi
  • 6-7 flakes of crushed red pepper (yes, actually counting flakes) and they are optional
  • zest from 1/2 lemon (optional)
Makes 2 servings.
Preparation
  1. Spray your saute pan with cooking spray on medium-high, saute your shrimp with a little chicken stock.
  2. When shrimp is almost done, remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Without washing your pan, add in garlic and a little more stock, let it cook down until the pan has a brown film, then add a little more stock, keep doing this until garlic is cooked and soft about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients and add the rest of the chicken broth.  Let simmer for about 3-5minutes until sauce thickens.
  5. Add the shrimp to the finished sauce and simmer for about 1 more minute.
  6. This makes 2 servings.  Serve half the amount over one serving of steamed veggies of your choice.
Optional Ideas
Chef notes:  Do not weigh your shrimp frozen.  The water and ice add a lot of weight. Don’t overcook the shrimp. Allow them to become translucent pink and a soft “C” shape.  This only takes a few minutes.
