I grew up in east coast states which are abundant with easy seafood. Unfortunately, developing up I usually had an aversion to seafood.

As an person who now lives in Phoenix, that is nowhere close to clean seafood, I am jogging on converting 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 challenge all began at my kitchen table (in which maximum great conversations appear in this house), one Saturday night time.

Chad (my husband) and his nice buddy were speakme about seafood and I informed Chad simply to go to the shop and purchase some shrimp, and I will figure it out. I had by no means cooked seafood both.

That night Chad determined out that our local grocery save sells Texas Gulf shrimp, which is prepared as close to domestic as I am going to get. At least until I skip back to Florida to visit subsequent month. That stated, anticipate plenty of yummy seafood recipes this summer season.

Although I definitely have now made some shrimp dishes, this wishes to be an appropriate and maximum delicious to this point. Prepared in a skillet in most effective 20 minutes, this recipe calls for a handful of components that you probably already have on hand!

Succulent garlicky shrimp in a lemon butter sauce this is made in simplest 20 minutes. It is so suitable Chad became choosing it out of the pan earlier than I ought to get dinner served. Maybe

  • This recipe cooks so quickly, you want to make sure you prep the ingredients before you turn on the stove. Trust me on this one!
  • This recipe is excellent on pasta or with fresh veggies.
  • Large Skillet-I have had this pan since 2006. It is my go-to large skillet. It heats evenly and quickly. The stainless steel cleans up beautifully with a little baking soda so they still look brand new.
