Lemon-Garlic Shrimp

I absolutely love making shrimp for a party.   Not only are the flavor possibilities endless, but they also cook in under five minutes.  I served these as a side to my sliced sirloin, but they would be perfect as an entree or appetizer as well.

*1 lb shrimp; peeled and deveined
* zest of 1 lemon
* 2 tbsp.  teriyaki sauce (or soy if you have it)
* 1 garlic clove, minced
* 1/4 c. olive oil
* 1/2 tsp. fresh ground pepper

Whisk together lemon zest, teriyaki sauce, garlic clove, olive oil, and pepper.  Add shrimp to marinade and refrigerate for 30 min (or longer if you have time!).  Preheat skillet to medium high heat.  Add shrimp to pan and sautee until just opaque; about 2 minutes per side.  Enjoy!
