Healthy Hearty Shrimp Scampi

Yum yum…rich garlicy shrimp scampi…the restaurant versions are calorie laden with heavy amount of butter. This version just as flavor but much lower in calories.

  • 2 small lemons
  • 1 medium chopped yellow onion
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • ¼ c fresh parsley
  • ½ c olive oil
  • 2 tbsp smart balance or earth balance

  1. In a large fry pan sauté garlic, chopped onion, and 1/8 c fresh parsley in olive oil on medium-high for 5 minutes stirring frequently.
  2. Rinse and drain shrimp.
  3. Add shrimp and smart balance in fry pan.
  4. Increase heat to high and cook stirring occasionally until all shrimp turn a pinkish color.
  5. Serve with a healthy salad and some whole wheat French bread.
