Easy Golden Garlic Shrimp
Why I Love This Recipe
This is a super easy, quick, weeknight recipe full of flavor that will blow your mind. There’s nothing complicated about it, but the simple ingredients combined in the right way is just amazing. The shrimp taste so buttery and rich, with the garlic infusion and just a little kick from the pepper. Serve this with a simply done veggie side like roasted broccoli (just stick the pan in the oven beside the shrimp) and you are done!
This would be super delicious served over cauliflower rice, or if you’re not doing a grain-free diet, with a crusty bread or over pasta. The sauce is seriously good. It would also be great for an easy party dish, just stick the shrimp on toothpicks and provide the sauce for dipping.
