Loren's Shrimp Shabby-Chic


This is my interpretation of Shrimp Scampi. I just love all things Shabby Chic, (the name has no real meaning).


Ingredients:

2lbs frozen cooked shrimp (I'm not cleaning shrimp with a bunch of babies running around.)

1 lemon chopped

olive oil 1/2 cup

1tbsp minced garlic from a jar (again, lets be practical here)

2 lbs Cooked spaghetti

Salt- I like the Kosher salt cause I'm a salty gal (goes into the spaghetti water)

a handful of breadcrumbs

Italian seasoning


In a frying pan, saute lemons, oil, seasoning, garlic, crumbs until brown. Then add shrimp that you have defrosted. Cook for five minutes until well-mixed. Serve over spaghetti. I like to put grated Parmesan cheese on top. This makes a nice family entree on Sunday. Enjoy!

Dear Internet Traveler,

Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.

Fondly,

Loren Christie
