2 tablespoons reduced-calorie margarineSavory Shrimp Scampi
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 cup dry white wine
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon salt-free lemon-pepper seasoning

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the margarine and olive oil. Add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute.

Add the shrimp and cook until they just begin to turn pink, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the wine, lemon juice, salt, lemon-pepper seasoning, white pepper, and red pepper flakes. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the wine reduces by almost half. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve piping hot.

Option: This tastes great over cooked angel-hair pasta or white rice. You’ll need about 2 cups of either one.
