Well it has not been easy getting back to work after 2 weeks off. I have not had much time or energy to make the type of meals I was when I was off. In fact Monday was soup (although homemade) and Tuesday and omelette, which somehow turned into scrambled eggs. I am sure after at least a week of rest I will be up and able to cook again. But these light meals have been good noting how much food and drink I consumed over the past two weeks.
One of the dishes I made over my holidays was lemon garlic shrimp. If you are looking for a quick, savoury and attractive looking appetizer I’d recommend trying out these out. The smell of the garlic and lemon sautéed makes your mouth water. And they literally take only a few minutes.
12 large shrimp, raw
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 lemon juice
1-2 T olive oil
1/4 cup parsley, fresh and chopped
salt and pepper
In a large skillet heat oil and garlic over medium high heat. Add lemon juice and parsley, Stir in shrimp until they turn pink. Season with salt and pepper while cooking.
