Lemon-Garlic Jumbo Shrimp Ingredients:

  • 3 T. unsalted butter
  • 1 T. garlic, finely minced
  • 1 lb. Jumbo shrimp (10/15 ct.), peeled, deveined, and tail removed
  • 1 large organic lemon, zest and juice
  • 1 T. ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley leaves, chopped

 

The tools that I love to use in the kitchen are (I’ve included my affiliate links to the products I use):

  • Lemon zester, great for getting the most use of the zest with minimal effort.
  • Citrus juicer, I use this for everything and it gets every last drop of citrus juice with minimal effort.
  • Garlic mincer, I put the whole clove in with the skin on and the mincer does all the work for me.
