Lemon Garlic Shrimp – Super quick and easy dinner of shrimp sauteed in butter and garlic and then finished with lemon juice.
Life is busy all year round, so if you are anything like me, you are always on the look out for quick and easy dinner ideas. One of my favorite things to use to get dinner on the table fast is shrimp. Shrimp recipes cook in no time, so dinner is always ready quickly. And this garlic shrimp is done in 15 minutes, you can’t beat that!
And if you can make it in one pan that is even better! Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo is definitely a favorite, and I love how fast is on the table. Shrimp dinner recipes are usually like that. Shrimp cooks in just minutes, so there is no waiting, not a lot of prep and you can have dinner together as a family more often.
Now that spring is actually in the near future, we can start talking about some more spring like food. Like this lemon garlic shrimp. Lemon in anything just brightens it up, and makes it spring like in my mind. Lemon Shrimp & Grits is a fun and light twist on a classic.
I love having shrimp recipes for weeknight meals. Sauteed shrimp cooks in just a few minutes, and goes with pretty much anything. As my husband says, shrimp is kind of like chicken in the seafood world. You can dress it up with any flavors you want, and it just works. You want it spicy? Spicy Garlic Shrimp is a favorite and ready in about 15 minutes!
Shrimp in garlic butter is pretty much as classic as you can get. But adding lemon just gives it that little twist to make it something new. You can serve this over pasta, or with a salad or other vegetables. My family would eat shrimp pretty much every night, if I let them. So this was definitely a hit at our house. Shrimp Dinner Recipes are pretty much my go to on busy nights.
Personally, I loved that it was ready in 10 minutes, so I didn’t have to spend all night in the kitchen. And it is made in one pan, so the dishes were not a problem either. This sauteed shrimp is so full of flavor you will love it. Lemon garlic shrimp will definitely be on regular rotation at our house, how about yours?
