i have been loving simple, fresh & easy meals lately.
who wants to be stuck in their hot kitchen for hours on a lovely summer night?
this recipe is especially simple, with only a handful of ingredients & few steps.
i've already made it twice this summer..
i think it's my new favorite shrimp dish.
this recipe from real simple (very fitting).
the only real modifications i made were seasoning the shrimp individually with kosher salt & freshly cracked pepper before adding them to the baking dish & using basil in addition to parsley. oh, and i used a bit more lemon juice than it called for because i am kind of a lemon fanatic. the cheese should be melted more, but i almost forgot about it (blashphemy, i know) and ended up adding it halfway through cooking time.
i served it on top of orzo (pasta in the shape of rice. love it!) and with fresh bread from the farmers market that i dipped in the juices. as you can tell from my plate, i'm a big eater. the shrimp are obscured by the massive amount of tomatoes. i took alll of them because joel isn't a tomato fan (i didn't mind). he also isn't a salad fan, so i made him roasted broccoli instead (my favorite way to cook broccoli.)
i hope all of you shrimp lovers give this dish a go! it's a perfect summer meal, in my opinion.
