This is my favorite quick, healthy(ish) dinner that can be made a million ways. This time, I made it with butternut squash and green beans. But substitutions are so easy for this recipe, and the shrimp goes with just about anything. Just pick a vegetable that’s in season and pair it with something green. That’s literally all I do.
I almost always have all the ingredients on hand to make this (I like to keep frozen shrimp in the freezer for the times when I have absolutely no other groceries), so this is easy to whip up when I have nothing else to make.
Parmesan Garlic Shrimp
30 raw medium-sized shrimp, peeled + without tails
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp minced garlic or 2 large cloves minced
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 tbsp parsley
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp pepper
1.Heat olive oil and garlic in a skillet over medium heat.
2. Add the shrimp and mix well with the garlic and olive oil.
3. Add parsley, salt + pepper.
4. Cook until the shrimp turns a pink-ish color, about 2-3 minutes.
5. Add the parmesan.
6. Mix well.
7. Pair with your favorite vegetables.
That’s it! That’s literally all you do! Isn’t it so easy?! This makes about 2-3 servings, depending on how much you eat, so I’ll have leftovers for dinner for the next few nights. Here’s a video of an Instagram story that I made showing you how I made this dinner:
