Tonight’s super fast dinner was delicious! I can’t believe I peeled & de-veined two pounds of shrimp on a Monday night.
To my big bowl of freshly cleaned shrimp, I added salt & pepper, (fresh cracked!) cayenne, basil, (the little frozen cubes) and lots of fresh squeezed lime juice.
*SIDENOTE* (I only used lime because I couldn’t find my lemon juice,
and I had limes left from my guacamole-making this weekend.
It was a serendipitous loss, ’cause lime and shrimp are very good bed fellows!!)
I made some angel hair pasta, and seasoned it with a generous amount of olive oil & butter, minced garlic, salt & pepper, cayenne, basil, and of course, a little extra lime juice.
THEN, I melted a stick of butter and added a heaping helping of garlic to that warm sautee pan. In that delicious smelling butter, I threw in my marinating shrimp. Once it was cooked thoroughly, I took it to the dinner table. I put the beautiful pasta in a lovely bowl given to me by my Aunt Lue!
I don’t know what compels me to cook so much lately, but it’s a blast!
This was beyond simple, yet gourmet delicious. And super fast. Monday night, you are my friend 🙂
