Things You’ll Need:

  • 1 pound bag of baby shrimp or 10 jumbo shrimp, deveined, detailed
  • 3 pieces of real garlic cloves
  • Garlic powder
  • Garlic salt
  • Lemon pepper seasoning
  • Real lemon juice
  • Salt & pepper
  • Butter or margarine
  • Medium sized pan

Cut garlic cloves into tiny chunks and set aside. Heat butter or margarine in a medium sized frying pan. Add garlic cloves and fry until slightly brown. Stir in shrimp and fry for 2-3 minutes.

Sprinkle garlic powder, garlic salt, lemon pepper seasoning, and salt & pepper over shrimp and garlic and fry for another 2-3 minutes, flipping once in between. Add a few drops of lemon juice and stir.

Fry shrimp for an additional 5 minutes, flipping often to coat and cook evenly. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over shrimp and let cook for another 2 minutes. Remove shrimp from frying pan and serve over rice, butter noodles, or on a salad.

If you want to try a healthy version of this recipe, simply substitute butter or margarine for olive oil; garlic spices for Mrs. Dash seasonings; and you could even bake this dish instead of pan frying.  You’ll cut out a lot of calories this way.

Be sure to use brown rice instead of white rice, whole wheat noodles instead white, or a low-fat side dish to keep this meal low calorie.  You can also make this same meal using chicken instead of shrimp if you do not like seafood.  It’s good with either.
