15-minute Lemon Garlic Shirmp - requires only a few simple ingredients to create a delicious meal!

Meal planning is easy when you have a few favorite dishes to rotate throughout the month. Every week, I try to make at least one or two of our favorite repeat meals for dinner and then try something new during the other days of the week. A few days we eat leftovers or just grab something quick. I love adding seafood to our menu because it usually requires little prep and is cooked in a short amount of time.

Lemon and garlic are my two favorite flavors to season seafood. I always have both readily available in my kitchen and the two simple ingredients create a meal that is simple yet flavorful. You won’t even believe how quickly this meal comes together. We often eat this dish as our entire meal or serve it over a big green salad.
