Shrimp Zucchinni onions garlic-4-poppopcooks.com-Shrimp recipes-easy shrimp recipes-cooking shrimp-shrimp dishes-shrimp meals

Shrimp cooks fast. Zucchini cooks fast. Onions cook fast. Garlic cooks fast. 

So, It looks like we are going to put together a quick and easy meal. 

BTW,,also a very tasty meal.

Whenever I start some pasta to go along with this recipe it turns into a race to see if the pasta or the Shrimp Zucchini Onions Garlic skillet is going to finish first.

If you want to turn this into a one pot meal you could add a little chicken broth or just water with a little lemon juice squeezed in and put some gnocchi’s in when you add the shrimp. The gnocchi will take about the same time to cook as the shrimp.

Alright, lets get going!

If you have to thaw and/or devein the shrimp get it started. They will thaw quicker in the microwave then in water.

Put a skillet on at medium high and swirl in enough olive oil to cover the bottom.

Rinse off the zucchini and slice it into about half inch thick slices. Cut the onion into strips. Add the zucchini and onion to the skillet. Salt and pepper. Toss or stir as they cook.

When the zucchini and the onion have started to brown…….

…….push them to the outside of the skillet and add the shrimp and the garlic. Squeeze in the lemon juice and toss in the rind.

One Pan Shrimp and Veggies in 30 Minutes

One Pan Shrimp and Veggies-8-poppopcooks.com

You can make a lot of different variations of this One Pan Shrimp and Veggies. Like, cooked rice instead of potatoes, any different mix of vegetables that you have on hand or leftover rotisserie chicken instead of Shrimp or anything else that you want to do with this real good and real easy one pan meal.

Thaw the shrimp in the microwave. Peel and devein if necessary.

Put a large skillet on at medium high with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. Cut the potato into thin slices and add it and the baby carrots to the pan. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Toss a couple of times as they cook.

Cut the onion into strips and chop the garlic. When the potato slices start to show signs of browning add the onion and the broccoli.

Toss everything together and when the onions start to get translucent push everything out to the edge of the pan and put the chopped garlic in the bare spot. Squeeze the lemon juice onto the garlic and put the rind in to the pan.

Let the garlic cook in the lemon juice for a minute then toss it all together.  Let it all cook for 2-3 minutes then push it all to the outside of the pan and make a spot for the shrimp. Add the shrimp to the bare spot laying them out so they are on their sides and not piled on top of each other.

As soon as the shrimp start to curl up – it’ll happen fast –  turn them over and get the other side a little curly. Add the chopped tomato then toss everything together again.

I added a small handful of baby spinach at the last minute – just because we had some –  and stirred it in to let it wilt just a little. Get a nice mix of all the ingredients into each serving and enjoy your One Pan Shrimp and Veggies. Garnish it with a pinch of dried parsley flakes and top it with some grated parmesan. A nice California Cabernet goes good.
