Easy Garlic Shrimp

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Nikki C.

Easy enough to whip up on a week night. I serve with broccoli on the side. Makes enough sauce to even use with the broccoli. Makes a wonderful, quick, easy meal that looks like it took a long time to make. Could also be used as an appetizer. (I use Tony Chachers Original Seasoning for the Creole seasoning.)

We really enjoyed this recipe. It was super easy and fast to make ! it took longer to make the rice to go with it than to cook the shrimp. I used Zatarain's creole seasoning and I loved the little kick it gives. I'll be making this again! Thanks for posting!
