Great info! Thanks so much for posting.

I was at Weis this weekend and got their Fresh From the Dock uncooked ready-to-peel shrimp (2 lb bag) on sale for $7.98. At some point in time, I realized that when you buy shrimp from the seafood counter, it too came to the store frozen, so why not just buy the bags of frozen shrimp when it's on sale and stock up the freezer?!

My favorite way to make the shrimp is to do a really easy and delicious scampi:

2 pounds thawed shrimp, peeled and rinsed
1 lb box angel hair, spaghetti, linguini (or pasta of your choice)
4-5 shallots, chopped
2 large cloves garlic, chopped
2 small chicken bouillion cubes (I think this is approximately 2 tsp bouillion)
white wine
lemon juice
olive oil

Toss the shrimp with 1/2 cup or so flour. Heat a large skillet and add olive oil. Add shallots, garlic, and shrimp. Stirring constantly, saute until the shallots begin to turn clear and the shrimp just begins to turn pink (this will not take long--only a few minutes--do not overcook the shrimp!). The flour should also just begin to lightly brown on the bottom of the pan. Turn the heat down slightly and add the chicken bouillion cubes plus 1-1/2 cup (or more/less, if desired) white wine and simmer 2-3 minutes until sauce begins to thicken. Add 1 cup (or more/less, if desired) lemon juice and simmer 1 minute more. Remove from heat and serve over pasta of your choice.

Makes about 6 servings.

(Note: I sometimes add a large handful of fresh spinach to the scampi at the very end and stir until it wilts.)
