Easy Lemon-Garlic Jumbo Shrimp
My family has owned seafood restaurants for years serving the finest fresh seafood. I cook seafood of some sort at least once a week, if not more. I know my seafood and this easy lemon-garlic jumbo shrimp recipe is such a fast meal!
This versatile main course goes from refrigerator to dinner table in less than 15 minutes. The classic flavors of this dish go with just about any side dish you choose. In addition to the serving suggestions noted here, it also makes a delicious low carb entrée when paired with steamed vegetables or a green side salad. I like to have some the next day in a taco or on a salad for lunch as well.
