Chili's Spicy Garlic & Lime Shrimp

I love it when you can bring a restraunt favorite home to cook and Chil's Spicy Garlic and Lime Shrimp is one of them:-) I am also doing my menu planning with I'm an Organizing Junkie. So, here is my menu this week: Also, $5 Dinners inspires us all to make low cost dinners. In that spirit, I am taking what Pick N Save has on sale, pairing it with coupons and coming up with the tastiest money saving around! Shrimp was on sale for $8.99/lb. (normally $13.99/lb.) at Pick N Save. I grabbed a bunch to make my featured recipe today: Chili's Spicy Garlic & Lime Shrimp Ingredients: 2 Tbs butter 1 clove garlic, pressed 1 lb fresh large shrimp, peeled (about 1 pound) 1 lime 3/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp ground black pepper 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper 1/4 tsp dried parsley flakes 1/4 tsp garlic powder 1/4 tsp paprika 1/8 tsp dried thyme 1/8 tsp onion powder Directions: 1. Make the seasoning blend by combining all the spices in a small bowl. 2. Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. 3. Add butter to the pan. 4. When the butter is melted, stir in the pressed garlic. 5. Immediately, add the shrimp to the pan. 6. Cut the lime in half and squeeze each half into the pan over the shrimp. 7. Sprinkle the entire seasoning blend over the shrimp, and give it all a good stir. 8. Saute the shrimp for 5 to 8 minutes or until they begin to brown. 9. Be sure to cook both sides of all the shrimp.

Sounds delicious. Unfortunately husband is allergic to shrimp and I do not like to cook for just myself.
