Healthy Shrimp Scampi


In an attempt to get back on the healthy wagon this week, I thought this would be a good recipe to kick it off.

I love shrimp scampi but it's usually full of butter. This recipe caught my eye because there's no butter at all. It was very light and had some great flavor. I served this with brown rice just to have some substance. The rice absorbed the sauce and was delish! Ingredients: 4 tsp olive oil 1 1/4 pounds med shrimp, peeled and deveined (tails left on) 6-8 garlic cloves, minced 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth 1/2 cup dry white wine 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice 1/4 cup + 1 T minced parsley 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper 4 lemon wedges 1 bag brown rice, prepared according to box Directions: In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil. Saute the shrimp until just pink, about 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook stirring constantly, about 30 seconds. With a slotted spoon transfer the shrimp to a platter and keep them warm. In the skillet, combine the broth, wine, lemon juice, 1/4 cup of the parsley, the salt and pepper; and bring it to a boil. Boil uncovered, until the sauce is reduced by half. Spoon the sauce over the shrimp. Serve garnished with the lemon wedges and sprinkled with the remaining tablespoon of parsley. Makes 4 servings.
