Quick Shrimp Scampi

½ stick (1/4 cup) of margarine

1 cup of fat-free Italian salad dressing
1/2 teaspoon of Garlic Powder
Juice of 2 lemons or 3 tablespoons of lemon juice
Cracked pepper to taste
2 pounds of uncooked shrimp, cleaned

Melt butter in a 9 x 13 pan lined with foil.  Stir in the dressing, lemon juice, garlic powder and pepper.
Add the shrimp, stirring to coat with the sauce.  Bake at 325 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until the shrimp is done.  Stir occasionally.  Do not over cook.  Serve with steamed rice.  Try to get fresh shrimp.  If using frozen, thaw completely, drain well and pat dry before cooking.
