    Default Drunken Shrimp (South Beach Diet)

    Suitable for all phases of the diet. I made this tonight, and it was delicious!

    Drunken Shrimp (P1)

    16 large shrimp
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 cup olive oil
    1 large onion, peeled and sliced
    salt and pepper to taste
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1 lemon, seeded and thinly sliced
    1/2 cup dry white wine

    Peel and devein shrimp, leaving the tails on. In a large skillet saute the garlic in the olive oil for 2 minutes. Add the sliced onion and salt and pepper. Saute until the onions become transparent. Add shrimp and saute for 2 minutes, or until shrimp turn pink. Add lemon juice, the lemon slices, and white wine, and cook for another 2 minutes.
    Remove from skillet and let cool to room temperature.

    Drunken Shrimp...I ordered Drunken Shrimp in Hong Kong once, and I was HORRIFIED at what it was there. The waiter brought a large bowl of LIVE shrimp to the table, then poured a bottle of rice wine over them. They then sat on the table for fifteen minutes, writhing around in the alcohol while we ate another dish. The waiter then returned and lit the dish on fire so that the shrimp cooked at the table. Now, I understand putting a live lobster in a pot, but that happens in the kitchen. This Drunken Shrimp was a bit too much for me to take.
