Shrimp Scampi

I am posting this because it is delicious but also because it is so stinking easy but seems like something special. Believe it or not it is pretty economical too.  I always choose fresh shrimp until the man behind the counter told me all of it was frozen at one point anyway -unless you are in Alaska, Norway or somewhere near Buba Gump.  If you are in Alaska by the way, eat some fresh "Spots' - shrimp that will change your life.  Nancy.

2-3 Tbsp olive oil
1 large onion finely chopped
3 cloves minced and crushed garlic
1 lb (thawed) uncooked peeled shrimp
About a Tbsp ideally fresh thyme, rosemary or your favorite herb

Heat the oil and saute the onion until translucent, then add the garlic and cook for a minute more.  Mix in the herbs and add the shrimp and saute until they are pink, no longer.  The whole process takes less then five minutes - you just need to plan ahead to make your rice, pasta or green salad to accompany the shrimp.
