Best Scampi Sauce EVER!!

We made this recipe for mom last year on Mothers Day (or was it her birthday??). Anyhow, it was sooooooo tasty. The sauce even made a wonderfully delicious salad dressing. And here is the kicker...it is a Weight Watchers recipe!! Amazing right? (with Shrimp it is only 4 points per serving) So tonight we decided to eat flounder. We cut the flounder into cubes, made some rice, green beans, and brussel sprouts. Then we made this scampi sauce, brought it to a boil and poached the cubed flounder in the sauce. It cooked up in less than two minutes! Over rice it was DELICIOUS! So...kudos to you Weight Watchers recipe team! This is my favorite scampi sauce ever.

4 tsp olive oil

6-8 garlic cloves, minced

1 cup low sodium chicken broth

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup + 1 T minced parsley

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper

Cook the garlic until tender in olive oil. Add the rest of the ingredients and whatever meat you like (=

Some other ideas:

*allow to cool and whisk in a little bit more olive oil as well as some mayonaise or dijon mustard to turn into a more "tight" salad dressing...yum

*add some corn starch (or make a roux) to thicken the sauce up a bit
