I love quick and easy dinner recipes, and judging by the number of shrimp recipes here on the blog I think it’s obvious how I feel about shrimp ;). Shrimp are perfect for quick meals because they cook in minutes. I found this recipe as I was digging my way through the bazillion emails in my inbox. It caught my eye immediately and I knew I had to give it a try. I’m so glad I did, because it was one of the best dinners I’ve made in a while. The ingredient list is short and all stuff you probably already have on hand -except maybe fresh parsley. I served it with a side salad and crusty baguette, but you could serve over pasta or even rice if you prefer. Enjoy!
