Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 pound frozen, peeled, and deveined medium-sized shrimp, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh herbs, such as parsley, thyme, and/or oregano, chopped

Directions

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shrimp and cook for 5 minutes, turning once. Add the lemon juice and increase heat to medium-high. Boil 30 seconds and then season with the freshly ground black pepper. Top each of the 4 servings with the fresh herbs.

Lemon Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Lemon Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
