Spicy Shrimp

Kelly teaches preschool with me and she recently brought this yummy shrimp for her lunch.  She just opened the container - and people were flocking wondering what the yummy smell was.  She hadn't even heated it yet.  She said she makes this regularly - just to have to snack and to bring for her lunch to preschool.  Another teacher said she and her husband make something similar on the weekend just to have as an appetizer.

I bought frozen, raw, deveined, shelled shrimp.  I could only find a small bag but I am in search of a larger bag.  This was wonderful.  I ate a few as they came out of the oven, my husband snacked on a few and my youngest finished them off for dinner.  They are good warm or cold!  Add them to your favorite pasta or grab as a snack as you pass the refrigerator.


Spicy Shrimp

4 tsp olive oil (or Pam with olive oil)

2 garlic cloves, minced

Spray the broiler rack with nonstick spray; preheat the broiler.  Combine first six ingredients and toss with shrimp. Place on broiler rack and broil 6-8 minutes or until golden - turning once.
