  • Basil Shrimp by doreenbuch

    This is so EASY and good!!! Great to use up some of that fresh basil from the garden!!!! I sometimes do it in the saute pan and put over pasta - may have to add a little more butter and olive oil. I always add more garlic and some hot pepper flakes!!! I have also added some shredded carrots and snow peas to it also if doing in saute pan - also freshly grated parm cheese for over the pasta!!!!

    Basil Shrimp

    This was given to me by my friend, Elaine. It is one of the most delicious shrimp recipes for the BBQ I have ever had, and it is so easy. My son would eat the whole recipe if I didn't watch him.
