What a great combination of flavors! Goes well with crusty bread. Or serve with rice or orzo pasta.

How to Make Greek Shrimp and Lemon


  1. Combine shrimp, Greek seasoning, lemon juice and zest, mint & parsley in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Add olive oil, garlic and red pepper flakes to a large skillet and sauce on medium-high for 30 seconds or so. Add shrimp and butter. Saute for 2-3 minutes until shrimp turns pink. Do not overcook - pre-cooked shrimp only need to be heated up!
