Pasta is 100% my favorite carb and shrimp is my favorite seafood. With an abundance of olive oil, garlic, and fresh picked lemons in my fridge, I figured I basically had to make shrimp scampi. I found super cool pasta at Trader Joe’s and whipped up this meal in less than 10 minutes after work today. 

BEST FOR- days you want a yummy & hearty seafood pasta in under 10 minutes with minimal effort. Literally all you need to be able to do is boil water, stir shrimp in a pan, and entertain yourself for a few minutes.

DIRECTIONS

  1. Put olive oil in a large frying pan. After it heats up (approximately one minute) add the minced garlic. Sauté until fragrant (about 1-2 more minutes). Simultaneously on another burner, bring water to a boil in a large pan.
  2. Add the fresh shrimp to the frying pan. Then, squeeze the juice of two of the lemons onto the shrimp in the pan. Leave uncovered and stir, for 5-7 minutes. Simultaneously, cook pasta. If you choose the Trader Joe’s pasta it only takes 4 minutes to cook.
  3. Chop parsley and cut the remaining lemon into pieces to squeeze on individual plates.
  4. Serve and Enjoy!
