This meal is like Quick Draw McGraw.
OK so after some research, I've learned that Quick Draw McGraw was a cartoon horse that walked around on his back legs like a human. So maybe that's not an appropriated simile.
But it's fast. I was able to put the marinade together in like 8 minutes. I know this because I have started to play this game where I try to get as much done as I can in the small window of time I have between getting home from work and going to my once every two weeks part time gig. It's kind of fun.
And weird. It's fun and a little bit weird.
Fun and a little bit weird is my favorite.
Spicy Parmesan Shrimp Skillet
adapted from How Sweet It Is
1 lb shrimp, peeled and de-veined and tails removed
1/4 cup of olive oil
1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp brown sugar
2 tsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
2 cups of whole wheat pasta
Combine the olive oil, cheese, garlic, brown sugar, soy sauce and red pepper flakes with a whisk. Place the shrimp in a large zip lock bag. Pour the mixture over the shrimp. Marinate for at least thirty minutes. Toss it around every once in a while to make sure that the shrimp is coated.
Prepare the pasta according to the package directions. Drain and set aside.
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the shrimp and cook until it's done. Add the pasta to the skillet and toss well.
Serving size 1 cup (makes about five)
