Lemon Basil Shrimp

Lemon Basil Shrimp

Lemon basil shrimp is made with fresh basil using one pan and is finished in under 30 minutes.

Lemon basil shrimp is a tasty way to make shrimp with slices of lemon, fresh basil, garlic, butter, and olive oil. It can be served over pasta, rice, or served by itself with maybe a green salad.

The summer has been moving along too quickly. We will have green beans to pick soon. It’s the first time in three years. Can you tell I am totally excited about fresh green beans? I have mentioned before that the past two years that the rabbits have been feasting on the veggies in the garden. This year so far we have been rather lucky.

And I am pretty excited about this recipe. I was able to pick the basil for this dish from our garden. I love using fresh herbs when cooking. They are so much better than the dried ones.

All I need to do now if find a spot in our house so that I can keep the herbs growing year round. Hmm… I will have to think about this one. Sounds like a great idea!

So, for this shrimp, it is totally easy to make and it tastes wonderful. I paired it with a green salad, but I would love it with pasta or rice.

To make it you will need only one pan, a skillet. I heated olive oil and butter together and threw in lemon slices and minced garlic. Once the lemon and garlic cooked for a minute or two the shrimp was added.

The cooking time for the shrimp will vary depending on the size of the shrimp. I used smaller shrimp and it was done under 30 minutes, that included the time for cleaning the shrimp.

Love this lemon basil shrimp and I hope you fall in love with it too.
