Garlic Shrimp with Peppers and Onions

One of the best things you can keep in your freezer is a bag of frozen, deveined shrimp.  I buy them when they go on sale.  It’s easy to take out as many as needed for a particular meal. This Spanish-inspired shrimp dish has great flavor and goes well with rice or as a topping for toasted or grilled slices of rustic bread.SG shrimp on toast 4
