Shrimp with Garlic and Bay
(Adapted from Cooking Light)
Quick, easy, and savory. Shrimp have small amounts of the healthy omega-three fats and lots of lean protein.
Serves 4-6

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 bay leaf
1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
4 lemon wedges

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add pepper, garlic, and bay leaf; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Increase heat to medium-high. Add shrimp; sauté until shrimp have pink or orange markings and white, opaque flesh (about 4 minutes). Remove from heat. Discard bay leaf. Serve with lemon wedges.
