Garlic Butter Shrimp with Corn
This was my riff on a recipe I saw on the Food Network app. It looked really tasty and colorful!
It's Lemon Juice Day! Lemon juice provides a nice hit of acid to almost any dish, but especially with seafood like shrimp.
What I used:
- Frozen Corn (1/2 bag)
- Cherry tomatoes (~5) cut in half
- Lemon (for zest and lemon juice)
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 4 oz. frozen shrimp (thawed)
- 1 teaspoon of minced garlic
- Fresh basil (torn)
- Red pepper fakes (generously sprinkled)
- Feta cheese
(I was making a half portion. )
First, I thawed the shrimp.
Then I put the frozen corn in the toaster oven on air fryer setting at 400 degrees for ~7 minutes.
In the mean time, I zested the lemon and put it in a bowl. I also melted the butter in this bowl with minced garlic and cut the cherry tomatoes in half and sauteed them.
I then microwaved the shrimp for 2 minutes with the tomatoes and butter and garlic.
I would have done a sheet pan dinner and put the shrimp on the sheet pan, but the "roasted" corn was almost done and I wanted to try out how shrimp would taste in the microwave. :)
I mixed in the shrimp, butter, garlic, tomatoes mixture with the corn. Then i sprinkled some red pepper flakes for some heat. I also tore some basil and put it on top. I sprinkled some feta cheese and lemon juice on top and I added some lemon wedges to finish it off.
Here is the finished product! So tasty all together! And fast.
