I love a tasty and easy dinner, especially in this summer heat! This Garlic and Herb Shrimp with Whipped Feta is the epitome of delicious and so quick and easy to make. Fresh herbs, loads of garlic, a little butter and a lot of love make this recipe unforgettable.
I don't eat seafood very often, but when I do, I make recipes like this Garlic and Herb Shrimp. It's only a few ingredients, super flavorful, and quick to whip together.
As of late, I've been enjoying easy recipes that don't require long cooking times. For one, I don't want to heat up the house in this crazy summer heat. Secondly, I'm in my last trimester of pregnancy and have just been exhausted. That being said - the quicker a recipe comes together the faster. Added bonus? All of the deliciousness - like that of this garlic and herb shrimp. Oh, and the whipped feta? Pairs perfectly!
It's super simple, see the steps below on how to make this garlic and herb shrimp:
To saute is to simply cook something quickly in a little bit of oil or butter in a pan. Sauteing is easily confused with frying, however, they're quite different. If you're frying something, you're typically submerging it in oil or at least a good portion in oil. When sauteing, only a small amount of oil and/or butter is used to brown and cook your ingredients.
This is one of my favorite questions because it lets you use this recipe as a template and pair it with whatever you want. I of course paired this garlic and herb shrimp with whipped feta and some grilled sourdough bread. However, a side salad would go exceptionally well with this too! Also, broccoli or brussels sprouts as well.
Oh! This would also pair well with some fresh cucumbers and olives too... or maybe I'll save that for another recipe 🙂
That's it! Gather your ingredients and let's cook up this recipe!
Dried herbs certainly have their place, however, for this garlic and herb shrimp, fresh herbs are preferred. Fresh herbs tend to provide a little more of an aromatic flavor when freshly cut and I love that. They tend to also add a more complex flavor/more depth to a dish.
In contrast, dried herbs usually have a more concentrated taste, allowing you to use less of it to achieve a desired result. Some herbs do however lose their flavor when dried, so fresh herbs are almost always my preference!
