Shrimp Scampi



Shrimp Scampi has long been a worldwide favorite.  This is a lightened up version of the typically fat-laden dish.  Lightened up by substituting broth for most of the oil.   High in protein, low in fat, tastes great, quick & easy!  Makes 4 Servings.

4 Teaspoons Olive Oil
1 1/4 pounds medium Shrimp, peeled (tails left on) and deveined
6-8 Cloves Garlic, minced
1 Cup Low-Sodium Chicken Broth
1 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice
1/4 Cup Plus 1 Tablespoon finely chopped Fresh Parsley
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
4 Lemon Slices

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil.  Saute' the shrimp until just pink, 2-3 minutes.  Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly.  With slotted spoon, transfer the shrimp to a platter; keep hot.

In the skillet, combine the broth, lemon juice, 1/4 cup parsley, the salt and pepper; bring to a boil.  Boil uncovered, until the sauce is reduced by half; spoon over the shrimp.  Serve, garnished with the lemon slices and sprinkled with the remaining tablespoon of parsley.
