Garlic Lover's Shrimp

Still cooking and still doing quick and easy meals, so for the last Friday of Lent (aka Good Friday), I returned to cooking light and found this shrimp recipe. It couldn't have been easier, with some chilled white wine, roasted asparagus and good old Uncle Ben's Wild Rice Pilaf, this came together easily. Oh, and everyone loved it.

YUM! This looks fantastic, Kim!
I love shrimp, so this will be next on my to-do list!
Thanks for sharing.

A perfect meal! Though I'd have to fight with Azar over the asparagus.

This looks really great - and so simple!! Love that part. ;)
