I'm making lemon garlic shrimp for dinner tonight with some sort of pasta (haven't decided yet.)



Here's the recipe I found:
http://www.kalynskitchen.com/2012/02/recipe-for-easy-garlic-and-lemon-shrimp.html



Instructions:
If using frozen shrimp thaw them over night in the refrigerator. Drain shrimp and pat dry.




Zest one large lemon and then squeeze the juice, to yield at least 2 T juice and close to 1 T lemon zest. Finely mince garlic cloves to make 2 T minced garlic.




Heat the oil over medium high heat and then melt the butter, using a large heavy pan. (I used a pan that was nice enough to serve the shrimp from, which helps keep them hot.) Add the shrimp in a single layer and cook just until they start to turn pink at the edges, not more than 1-2 minutes.




Turn shrimp over quickly and add the minced garlic. Continue to cook until shrimp are barely firm, probably not more than 3-4 minutes more. (Don't overcook; the shrimp will continue to cook a little in the hot pan.) Turn off heat and add the lemon juice, lemon zest, and salt as desired and stir to coat shrimp. Serve immediately.




Does anyone have any other tips/suggestions? I feel like I need to add something more lol.

For some reason, I think zucchini and chives would be good with that, like minced with the garlic.
