Citrus Shrimp with Snow Peas over Spaghetti Squash
<!-- google_ad_section_start(name=default) -->Tuesday, March 6, 2012Citrus Shrimp with Snow Peas over Spaghetti SquashI bought my first spaghetti squash the other day. I'll admit I had no idea how to cook it. Google to the rescue! So simple, I just pierced it five or six times with a sharp knife and popped it in the microwave. This recipe, typical of the way I cook and quilt, is an accumulation of various ideas floating around in my head. I think it turned out quite nicely, and it was super quick and easy. Give it a try. PeggyYou will need the following ingredients:1 1/2 lbs of cooked shrimp thawed, tails removed1 pkg snow peas1 spaghetti squash3 Tblsp fresh lemon juice3 Tblsp white wine2 tsp olive oil1/2 tsp fresh minced garlic1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes1/4 tsp paprika1/4 tsp sea salt1 bay leaf2 Tblsp fresh parsleyThaw the shrimp, remove the tails, and squeeze out the excess water. Squeeze the lemons to make 3 Tblsp of juice. I love my green vintage depression glass juicer that I got from my Grandma. It makes me smile.Combine the lemon juice, wine, and all spices in a bowl. Add the shrimp and marinate for at least 30 minutes.Remove the shrimp, then heat the marinade in a fry pan. Add the peas and saute for about 4 minutes.
