Lemon-garlic shrimp is bursting with flavor, truly better than any restaurant. A one-skillet meal, made in just 20 minutes, this is a recipe you are not going to want to pass up. A silky lemon butter sauce is served over these succulent shrimp, cooked just right. Perfect to be served on a bed of steamed vegetables or pasta.
I grew up in east coast states that are plentiful with fresh seafood. Unfortunately, growing up I always had an aversion to seafood. As an adult who now lives in Phoenix, which is nowhere near fresh seafood, I am working on changing that.
You may have noticed that there was not one seafood recipe on our site (until now). Well... I am working on improving that too!
The seafood mission all started at my kitchen table (where most great conversations happen in this house), one Saturday night. Chad (my husband) and his best friend were talking about seafood and I told Chad just to go to the store and buy some shrimp, and I will figure it out. I had never cooked seafood either.
That night Chad found out that our local grocery store sells Texas Gulf shrimp, which is about as close to home as I am going to get. At least until I go back to Florida to visit next month. That said, expect a lot of yummy seafood recipes this summer.
So, while he was at the store I whipped out my trusty Le Creuset stainless pan. I have been using Le Creuset's Stainless Steel cookware set for a year now and I absolutely love it!
I have to say after a year of use and abuse this cookware has held up amazingly! That photo above is of my 1-year-old pan.
Of all the pieces, my Le Creuset 10" fry pan is definitely my go to piece and we are excited to share with you!
We love our cookware so much we have decided to give one of my favorite pans to one of our readers. Click here to enter and get more GIVEAWAY DETAILS. <-- GIVEAWAY CLOSED
Although I have now made a few shrimp dishes, this has to be the easiest and most delicious so far. Prepared in a skillet in just 20 minutes, this recipe calls for a handful of ingredients that you probably already have on hand!
Succulent garlicky shrimp in a lemon butter sauce that is made in just 20 minutes. It is so good Chad was picking it out of the pan before I could get dinner served. Maybe "serves 6" is a bit of a stretch. He could have eaten the whole pan!
With love from our simple kitchen to yours.
