Lemon-Garlic Jumbo Shrimp

It doesn’t get much easier than this! This versatile main course goes from refrigerator to dinner table in less than 15 minutes.

The classic flavors of this dish go with just about any side dish you choose. In addition to the serving suggestions noted here, it also makes a delicious low carb entrée when paired with steamed vegetables or a green side salad.

I think it takes longer to get the side dishes ready then to prepare this awesome shrimp entree.
