I’m all for quick dinner ideas, especially in the hot summer months. It just gets too hot in the kitchen to cook a lengthy, elaborate meal. This recipe is fast, simple and delicious. It only has a few ingredients, and as for the shrimp, I used pre-cooked ones, just to make it even faster. It’s a perfect dish for a weeknight dinner, or on the weekend for a nice dinner with friends or family. It literally only takes about 20 minutes to prepare this, so get cooking!
