Dinner Made easy with this One Pan Spicy Garlic Shrimp

30 minutes Garlic Butter Shrimp with Zucchini at SweetnSpicyLiving.com

Busy days call for a simple one pan recipe like this one. This recipe is so easy to make and one of my favorite one pan recipe, just like my One Pan Spicy Mexican Quinoa. Although this is a very simple recipe, it is full of flavor and taste. Don’t under estimate the power of one pan recipe my friend. One thing I also love about this is it is very flexible.

You can use any of your favorite vegetables , just toss and mix them together. You can eat it with steamed rice, or noodles too.  No rice, no noodles? No problem! This is a meal on its own already, sometimes I add mix vegetables and I just eat this on its own. Yummy! Let’s get started!
