Interested in having dinner on the table in 20 minutes? Let us recommend sautéed shrimp with lemon, garlic, and parsley, which requires a fast stop at the fishmonger on the way home from work and, if you’re lucky, a visit to your garden with a pair of shears.

There's really not much you need to know for this recipe: Don’t burn the garlic (you knew that though, right?); don’t crowd the shrimp (you were tempted); don’t skimp on the lemon or parsley. Serve with a salad and some yummy French bread. For some reason, you may then crave chocolate pudding. Serve that too.
Sauteéd Shrimp with Lemon, Garlic, and Parsley
Serves 2
Ingredients:
1 pound fresh, medium-sized shrimp
1 bunch flat leaf parsley
4 cloves garlic
1 lemon
3 tbsp butter
Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper
A baguette (or your favorite bread), for dipping
Instructions:
1. In cold water, clean and devein the shrimp. Set aside on a paper towel to absorb any excess water.
2. In a large sauté pan on medium-low heat, add enough olive oil to coat and 4 cloves of minced garlic. Add your shrimp so they are all even on the bottom of the pan. Add the zest of one lemon and season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes and flip. They take very little time to cook.

3. Finish with a handful of fresh chopped parsley, the juice of the lemon, and 3 tablespoons of butter. Serve hot with a baguette for dipping. This is super fast, tasty, and simple. Delicious.
