Lemon Shrimp or Scallops





I’m all for easy meals, and this is one of them. You can use either shrimp or scallops in this dish. The original recipe called for butter, but I use a bit of chicken broth instead for less calories. Take your pick. Serve on a bed of cooked rice with  a green salad on your next laid-back evening.

Servings: 6   Serving size: 1/2 cup   Preparation time: 20 minutes




Ingredients 3 oz chicken broth 3 pounds shrimp or scallops 2 medium garlic cloves, peeled and              crushed 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice 3 tablespoon cooking sherry 3 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

Instructions 1. Heat broth to simmering. ​2. Add the garlic cloves, shrimp or scallops, and cook about 3 minutes until tender. ​3. Add lemon juice, sherry, and parsley and heat through. Serve on a bed of cooked rice.

I hope you enjoy this dish. Let me know if you’ve tried it and how it turned out. Good cooking to you,
