When I was first married, I was given advice by a friend on what to keep on hand in my freezer.She further explained that you never know when you’ll have unexpected guests.Her recommendation was a bag of frozen, cooked, peeled and deveined shrimp. This "Garlic Shrimp" recipe has often been my go-to entrée to throw in a crock pot for a crowd, and it is always a big hit!This dish can be served as an appetizer, the main fare or over a salad.I especially enjoy this with our previously posted Quinoa recipe.
1 ½ pounds of pre-cooked shrimp (thawed if previously frozen according to package directions)
2 T olive oil
2 tsp crushed garlic
1 T grated pecorino romano cheese
Heat olive oil and garlic over medium heat, add shrimp and cheese and mix well until heated through. Garnish with flat leaf parsley.
