Simple and quick. Sometimes you just need easy, fast go-to dishes. It’s those nights when you get home from work, you’re extremely tired, it’s dark outside (because of daylight savings time, its really late; or whatever), you and your family are very hungry, and you need something that is NOT pizza delivery or Taco Bell because you actually care about your arteries. Not to mention the fact that these nights come up more often than not because this is real life. Am I right?
Ok, onto the easy-peasy shrimp that you can pair with really anything.
1 pound shrimp, deveined and peeled
1 stick butter, melted
Juice of one orange
Juice of one lime
1 handful fresh cilantro, chopped
Combine the juices, cilantro and butter; add shrimp and give it a stir.
Coat a large pan with cooking spray. Over medium heat, add shrimp and juice mixture. Cook for about 3-5 minutes, stirring continuously until shrimp is pink. Done!
You could put this over rice or polenta; maybe over a big Greek salad and some garlic bread. Or wait, maybe smothered on TOP of some garlic bread and sprinkled with fresh parm (using the Pampered Chef rotary grater, by chance?). That would be good…..Shrimp Bruschetta???
Or you could just eat it by itself with a big fat glass of Chardonnay.
