Recipe Notes

  • You can add fresh herbs to the recipe or 1/2 teaspoon dried Greek seasoning or Mediterranean seasoning.
  • Not sure to how clean shrimp? It's easy! Rinse the shrimp under cold water. If you bought shrimp with heads on, carefully remove the head (some recipes do call for shrimp with heads on). Carefully remove the legs. Remove the shell. You can remove the tail now or leave it on. That is based on personal preference and the recipe you are making. Carefully run a sharp knife just on the surface of the back and rinse out the vein. 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds. 
  2. Add the shrimp and cook, stirring, until just cooked through. 
  3. Squeeze the juice from the lemon into the pan. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, about 1 minute. Serve with additional lemon slices, if desired
