Sizzled Citrus Shrimp

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/sizzled_citrus_shrimp.html

From EatingWell:  Spring 2004, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

This quick Spanish-inspired saute is a lesson in simplicity. All shrimp really needs to dazzle is lots of garlic and a splash of lemon. Serve as a main dish or as a tapa (appetizer).

4 servings, about 3/4 cup each | Active Time: 15 minutes (including peeling shrimp) | Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

Marinade & shrimp

Sauce

Preparation

  1. Combine lemon juice, wine, 2 teaspoons oil and garlic in a medium bowl. Add shrimp and toss to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 15 minutes, tossing occasionally. Drain well, reserving marinade.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and cook, turning once, until barely pink, about 30 seconds per side; transfer to a plate. Add bay leaf, crushed red pepper and the reserved marinade to the pan; simmer for 4 minutes. Return the shrimp and any accumulated juices to the pan; heat through. Season with salt, sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
