If you love shrimp, then you are going to love this quick and easy Lemon Garlic Shrimp Scampi Recipe. Spicy Cajun-style shrimp is served on a bed of creamy, homestyle, stone-ground grits with a garlicky baby kale saute on the side. And when you combine these two in a glorious shrimp skillet, well, it’s nothing short of perfection. Shrimp provides nutrients such as vitamin B12, vitamin E, niacin and omega-3 fatty acids.
If desired, remove the shrimp from pan so they don’t overcook, and reduce the sauce a little to thicken it (keep an eye on the sauce while reducing, the honey makes the sauce easy to burn if you forget about it on the stove). Gently mix the shrimp with 2 tablespoons of the oil, then season well with salt and pepper.

So in the end, I believe this is more or less a Thai-Jamaican fusion coconut curry shrimp recipe. It wasn’t until I passed a display of this gluten free pasta that the kernel of a recipe took hold as I vaguely began remembering making a cream and vermouth-based pasta sauce so very many years ago.
Tiger shrimp, white shrimp, pink shrimp, and even prawns—there are so many kinds of shrimp to choose from and they all have distinctive tastes. Andouille sausage brings Cajun flavor to this shrimp saute served over white rice.

Shrimp is perfect for fried dishes as the crunch gives way to tender, succulent meat inside. I split some baby romaine lettuce coated them with olive oil and salt and grilled them the same time I was cooking the shrimp. Place this gently over a pan sprayed with oil under low flame and let it cook for a minute and half and the cheese should start melting by now.
