Shrimp Scampi Coctail

     Entertaining is at an all time high during the Holidays.  Overindulgence and celebrating seem to go hand in hand, but those don't have to be mutually exclusive.  I enjoy serving leaner options like my Shrimp Scampi Coctail.  Also, Whole Foods Market offers a large aray of options to help you be the hostess with the mostess, all the while providing a savory variety of healthy choices.  Fabulous produce with Hope Hummus for dipping, not to mention beautiful Shrimp that make the perfect appetizer becoming the shining star of any gathering.  Not to be forgotten, a top notch area with exquisite cheese selections that pair wonderfully grapes, pears, and apples.  And the best part is, if time is short, Whole Foods will make up your platters for you, call the store directly or order online at  They cook, you feast...or you can slave away in the kitchen all night...and probably the next morning too.  You choose  :)

Shrimp Scampi Coctail~8 servings, each 4oz serving is 97 calories, NO carbs and 18g protein:
1 Tablespoon 365 Everyday Value Extra Virgin Olive Oil

     Add Oil and Garlic to large skillet (I love my Copper Skillet), heat til Garlic becomes fragrant and starting to change to a golden brown.  Add shelled raw Shrimp til cooked thru and pink,  squeeze half of Lemon thru mesh sieve over Shrimp and stir to coat well.  If desired, serve with a Coctail dipping sauce by stirring together Sriracha and Ketchup to desired heat level.  Slice remaining half of Lemon and squeeze in dipping Sauce or over Shrimp before serving as desired.  Enjoy  :)  #sponsored #Wholefoods #Wholefoodfaves #Tasteofwholefoods
