If you love shrimp- this is a super easy, quick must recipe! A little-known fact about me, shrimp is one of my favorite foods. I love it and could eat it every day. I’m so excited that I tried this recipe because of how fast and tasty it is. I really liked the flavor and my daughter did too! (Win!!) One of the great things about it is the versatility of it. It was good on couscous, and I’m sure would be good on rice. But I think it could also be paired with a grilled steak or a yummy summer salad. (Or even by itself!)
