I wanted something quick, easy, and inexpensive. So why not Garlic Shrimp with some fresh green beans?
Here's that recipe:
Prep 10 min +Cook 10 min
This is your dish! Feel free to swap out green beans for Brussels Sprouts, carrots, or even wait til the end and throw in some fresh spinach. Be creative!
My husband loves a little more spice. So he topped his plate with a fiery Thai chili sauce that was actually pretty good!
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, onions and red-pepper flakes; cook, stirring, until garlic is fragrant and golden (but not brown), about 30 seconds.
Add your Green Beans and sauté 3-4 minutes. You want them to be crisp, not wilted and soft.
Move your beans, garlic and onions to one side of your pan and add add your shrimp in an even layer in the pan and cook for 1 minute without stirring.
Add lemon, garlic powder, pepper flakes, salt and pepper, and butter over your shrimp and cook for 2 more minutes.
Give it all a good stir to evenly mix it all through. Top with parmesan cheese. Then serve hot.
