Shrimp Scampi (Low Carb)

You can only eat so much beef when on a low carb diet, so I want to have a nice variety of seafood to choose from.  Shrimp Scampi is a goody – quick to make, intense flavors, and only 2 carbs per serving.  If you are not on a low carb diet I would serve this over toasted garlic crostini, or an ample serving of linguine.  I on the other hand, will serve mine over spaghetti squash – yum!

This was one of my contributions for appetizers this Christmas Eve.  They went quickly – so assuming they were well received.  I love shrimp and if you add some onion and garlic to it, and then fry it, I love it even more!   Will be looking to add more fruits and vegetables to my diet in 2013, but for the next few days till the end of 2012 I am concentrating on foods that I really, really like!   So before I change my ways for 2013 I will make these again for New Years Eve – only more, lots more.
