In large skillet over medium high heat, saute scallions and garlic in oil for one minute, stirring frequently. Stir in next 6 ingredients; cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add shrimp, stir for 3 or 4 minutes, or until cook through. Remove from heat.
Serve over cooked brown rice. I would cook a cup of brown rice.
Divide rice and shrimp sauce. Top with feta cheese.
Garam masala is a blend of Indian spices that may include cardamom, coriander, cumin, fennel, black pepper, and a variety of Northern Indian spices. The rich yogurt sauce counters the peppery shrimp. Serve over quick-cooking brown rice.

Hi Daizeefli! Try sauteing the shrimp with lemon juice, cilantro, and lime. If you want to serve it over brown rice, after the rice is done cooking, place it in a skillet, crack open a couple eggs and add some frozen mixed veggies like cut up carrots, peas, etc and stir around until cooked through, then add the shrimp on top.
Soft shrimp tacos/fajitas would be yummy too, just add chopped/shredded cabbage or lettuce, with sauteed peppers, onions, and tomatos, along with your favorite salsa.
You can season shrimp anyway you want, cajun spices are really good, along with lemon juice, limes, salt/pepper, garlic, onion powder...just take your favorite seasonings that you like on other things and toss them in.

Wondering if you have a favorite shrimp recipe. Doesn't necessarily have to be over brown rice. Hoping to make this for dinner. Hubby loves seafood (used to live near Cape Cod) - so wanted to make him something he will really enjoy! **Sorry - put this in the wrong category. I am new around here AND blonde.. lol!!!
