Garlic Shrimp

This is a REALLY fast and even my eight year old son loves it. I need to double it to just get one meal of out it. Buy some frozen (or already thawed) wild shrimp and you'll have dinner on the table in minutes. Please be mindful about the type of shrimp you buy. Read this Consumer Reports article to learn more about shrimp quality.

1.5 tbsp pasture butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
½ tsp red pepper flakes
1 lb. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 lemon
Sea salt and pepper, to taste

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add butter.
Once butter is hot, add garlic and cook for 1 minute.
Add shrimp, red pepper flakes, and juice from ½ of lemon.
Cook until shrimp turns opaque.
Season with sea salt and pepper.

Serves 2

As my clients know, it's not a meal unless it includes at least three vegetables and why clean more than one pan? I added in chopped portobello mushroom, asparagus and kale to complete the meal.
