This recipe serves one, but like, I was really full after all this so you can probably cut down the portion size depending on how hungry you are (...duh...).
Ingredients (really imprecise measurements, sorry about that):
- Shrimp (I used 8 jumbo shrimp)
- One basil leaf (chopped)
- One parsley leaf (chopped)
- One clove of garlic (chopped)
- Butter (two knobs)
- Zucchini (optional/can replace with any vegetable)
- 1/4 cup Basmati rice (optional)
|The final product... Looks tasty, no?|
Step One: You can very well use fresh shrimp for this recipe, but if you're using frozen shrimp, you'll need to soak them in a bowl of cold water for a couple minutes. They'll be easier to peel once they're thawed. While you wait, move on to step two.
Step Two: Cook off one clove of chopped garlic, two knobs of butter, some chopped basil and some chopped parsley. You'll know it's ready when the bits of garlic turn a faint golden color. BUT be careful! You don't want them to burn! Keep a close eye on this because they'll be golden one minute but burnt the next. Once it's done, remove it off the burner and let it settle. (You'll see a couple steps that I left it on the burner too long--oops!)
Step Three: When you're done with your herb, garlic and butter, you can go ahead an de-shell your shrimp. Then, you'll need to pat the excess water off.
Step Seven: Place everything onto a plate and voila! Dinner!
