Killer Shrimp Scampi

I love seafood. That would be a major perk to living on the west coast... or the east coast, I don't have experience as to what is available on the east coast, but I'm sure any fresh sea food would be wonderful. Instead we are land-locked and every now and then I'll splurge on some seafood and scampi ranks right up at the top of my list!

Shrimp Scampi

1 lb cooked/frozen diveined shrimp
1/2 c. butter
1 TB garlic powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese.

Slowly melt butter over med to med hi heat, when bubbly toss in shrimp, adding seasonings. Stir occasionally. When you notice the shrimp start to make tighter circles (going from a 1/2 moon shape to an actual circle) sprinkle in the parmesan cheese. Cook while stirring for 1 minute. Serve.

Once a year Red Lobster has "All you can eat shrimp" and while I try a variety, the scampi is by far the main course. This scampi tastes just as good, if not better, and I don't have to wait for one month out of the year to have it.

Yes, I love seafood too...The taste the smell, everything.

Looking at this, I feel like eating some of those prawns in thin batter with a bit of pepper....I love those.
