Say hello to your new favorite one pot meal. This seriously blew away our taste buds and became an instant favorite with the first bite.
Rewind to the time I despised shrimp. Yes I hated shrimp. But I am a firm believer in giving things a chance. For example. I used to hate salmon. Now it is hands down my favorite thing to eat.
So I told myself that I am going to give shrimp a chance. Especially because my hubby loves shrimp! So I try to cook a meal with shrimp for him a few times a month. This dish my friends is incredible. And even the former shrimp hater aka me LOVED it!
The awesome thing about this meal is that it is cooked in just one pot. Only having to dirty one pot and deliver an amazing meal for the fam= one happy mama.
The shrimp is cooked in an amazing lemon garlic butter sauce that is to die for. I love shrimp because it cooks so incredibly fast. It gets tossed in spinach and pasta and fresh grated parmesan cheese.
So basically all of my favorite things in one. Lemon, butter, garlic, parmesan…. are you getting hungry? 🙂
You guys are going to LOVE this meal. I pinky promise.
