Slightly Savory Saturday

I have seen a lot of recipes floating around for shrimp but they all used tons of butter.  Finally I have the answer!  A shrimp recipe that uses chicken broth instead and is a bit of a healthier option.  Enjoy!

P1020338Easy and Healthy Shrimp

4 tsp olive oil

1 1/4 pound medium raw shrimp, peeled and deveined (leave tails 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 plus 1 T minced parsley

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

4 lemon wedges


In a large non stick skillet, heat oil. Sauté the shrimp until just pink, about 2-3 minutes.  Add garlic and cook while constantly stirring–about 30 seconds.  Transfer shrimp to platter and keep warm

In the same skillet combine the broth, wine, lemon juice, 1/4 cup parsley, salt and pepper and bring to a boil.  Boil uncovered until sauce is reduced by half.

Spoon the sauce over the shrimp.  Serve garnished with the lemon wedges and remaining parsley sprinkled on top.  A side of pasta is perfect along with a green salad.  Quick, easy and delicious.
