Simple Shrimp Lunch

When I think of lunch my mind never thinks of shrimp. I think sandwiches, leftovers, panini, soup, salad, ect. But never shrimp. I'm not sure why either. For the past three months I have had a bag of frozen shrimp in my freezer. It has been literally been coming at me like an avalanche every time I've had to put something in the freezer, I should have taken that as a sign to eat it!

It wasn't until about 10 minutes ago when I went in search of the beautiful Delmonico steak and roasted potatoes we had for dinner that night that I realized it was gone! Yup, my husband had beat me to it and took it to work for lunch. A little part of me died in that moment. You know when you've been looking forward to a meal all day just to have your hopes and dreams crushed? I stood in front of the fridge in a coma. What will I eat nowwww??? I whined to myself but decided I had to think of something other than the PB&J my son was eating. So I pulled up my big girl panties, grabbed the fresh green beans and that bag of frozen shrimp basically leaped into my arms. 

This delicious lunch took all of 8 minutes to make and it looks so elegant for a mid-week lunch! It can also be paired with rice or any other side as a main course!




Ingredients:
5-8 Large Shrimp
1 Cup Green Beans
1 tsp Butter or 1 tsp olive oil
1 tbs Parmesan Cheese

How To Cook:
Place frozen shrimp in a bowl and run under hot water until thawed

Peel the tail off the shrimp and de-vain (if it comes with veins...remember that's poop so get rid of it!)

Sautée green beans and shrimp with the butter  or olive oil in a pan on medium/high 

Once the shrimp is pink in color and opaque remove from heat

Let sit for about 2 minutes to cool enough then sprinkle with parmesan cheese. If you try and sprinkle it on when it's still super hot then it gets all gummy and gross!

ENJOY!
