Garlic Butter Shrimp

This is so easy! Fast as well, sometimes when I don’t want to do much else for dinner, it’s a seafood night. The kids gobble shrimp down anyway it’s prepared. So fast the pan I cooked it in hasn’t even cooled off. This recipe is a favorite around here, I serve it with rice , or even with thin pasta along with alot of veggies, like peppers, asparagus, thinly sliced carrots, peas, you name it, toss it on in there 🙂

1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 to 3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup butter
3 tablespoons lemon juice
Hot cooked rice

In a large skillet, saute the shrimp and garlic in butter for 5 minutes or until shrimp turn pink. Add the lemon juice; heat through. Serve with rice.
