Lemon And Garlic Shrimp – 10 Minute Dinner

I am not the biggest fan of seafood but my husband goes nuts for it. Fried fish, crab melts on English muffins or anything that involves shrimp.

Shrimp is one of the kinds of seafood that I do like, and for that, I like to incorporate it into our menu. I love how fast and easy it is to make, and it gives you that extravagant dinner that looks like you have been slaving away at the stove all evening.

This dish literally is a breeze to make and is packed full of vibrant flavors!

Sides To Pair With Shrimp

Depending on the day we serve it with some asparagus, roasted broccoli with parmesan, pasta, and even rice.

It is just what I have on hand that day or what sounds good. I try to keep a variety in our home, so no one gets bored of eating the same things.

This garlic lemon shrimp is one item though I like to keep in my arsenal for our seafood nights. 

How to Make Garlic Lemon Shrimp

Simply grab a pan with some oil and heat it up to medium-high heat.

Then you will want to saute your garlic and parsley and salt for about 1 minute, this helps release the flavors.

Next toss in your shrimp and stir often until it is cook pick and cooked through. Then toss in lemon zest and juice and dinner is ready.

This takes minutes to cook and with the prep, it takes a total of 10 minutes! I mean talk about an easy breezy recipe.

Does Shrimp Store Well

Shrimp is best when served fresh. You will find the texture of shrimp changes once it cools down and needs to be reheated.

Best Way To Reheat

You can toss in the microwave for a quick reheat. Just make sure you don’t over-heat the shrimp or it will become rubbery.

You can also reheat in the pan on stove on low if you prefer that method.
