Looking for something to make for dinner? Give this a try; it’s fast, easy and delicious. Best of all, it’s low-fat!
Juice of one lemon, divided
1 tsp dried oregano
20 medium shrimp, tail on
1/2 jar roasted red capsicums, chopped
8-ounces angel hair pasta
1 cup peas
Freshly ground black pepper
Combine lemon zest, and half the lemon juice in a dish. Add shrimp and marinate for 10 minutes.
Place a large pot of water on to boil for the pasta. Place angel hair pasta in pot, followed by peas. Cook pasta according to packet instructions.
Preheat broiler, and spray broiler pan or baking sheet with nonstick low-fat cooking spray. Arrange marinated shrimp on broiler pan, and broil 3 minutes first side, and two minutes the other. Do not overcook. Remove from heat.
Quickly drain pasta and peas, and empty into a large serving bowl. Add shrimp and chopped capsicums; pour remaining lemon juice over the shrimp and pasta, and toss. Use freshly ground black pepper if desired. Serve immediately (duh, who wouldn’t want to chow down on this immediately anyway?).
