You know those times when you've got to get something on the table, but you're got too much going on (or you just want a break)? Lately, I've found shrimp rescuing me. Shrimp cook so quickly and easily, you'll get this dish on the table without much time in the kitchen. (Of course you don't have to let your guests know how long it took (or didn't take). It'll be our little secret. OK?)
