Summer Shrimp Skillet

posted in: Main Dish, Recipes | 0

I’m manifesting summer right now by cooking allllll the recipes that make me think of the warm days ahead! Seafood is definitely one of those as crab and shrimp are some of my favorite foods! Everyone else in the fam loves them as well so it’s always nice to cook a meal everyone enjoys…Plus I love the fact that this Summer Shrimp Skillet is fast, tasty and healthy!

Zucchini, yellow squash, red pepper, mushrooms and shrimp all come together to make this into something fantastic. However, you will need to make my House Seasoning beforehand as this recipe calls for it. Not to worry though!

The seasoning takes less than 5 minutes to whip that up and it’s a wonderful to have on hand to cook many other dishes with!

When it’s done cooking, simply eat it as-is or serve over a bowl of rice or quinoa.

To allow for the best flavor, the shrimp will be marinated while the vegetables are chopped.

After chopping all of the vegetables, stir fry and set aside.

Now it’s time for the shrimp! Shrimp cook fast so be careful not to overcook them and make them tough and chewy. Once they are done (about 2-3 minutes per side), the vegetables will be added back in to combine it all together.
