Laura's notes for this recipe:
This is a very easy, quick meal to prepare, especially if you keep these ingredients available in your pantry and freezer.

Do not over cook the shrimp... Remove pan from heat when shrimp goes from transparent to white in color.

Spice Islands Pizza & Pasta Sicilian Seasoning (for topping once dish is on plate) has a slight sweet and savory taste. It is -not- similar to the italian seasoning most people have in their cupboard. It comes in a grater-topped bottle for easy grinding directly onto dish. And it's great on pizza too!

Also great with ASPARAGUS as pictured!
Add asparagus (2" lengths) when adding shrimp for al dente, or a little earlier if you like it more tender. I take a vegetable peeler to the stalks if they are on the large side.
