Shrimp with Basil and Garlic

May 06, 2015

This 15 minute meal is amazing and so simple for a weeknight dinner. The aroma of the fresh basil, garlic and shrimp will have your mouth watering as it cooks. The beauty of this recipe is that you will only need a couple of ingredients to make a delicious meal. You will need a good olive oil, fresh basil, garlic, and our wild caught Sustainably harvested shrimp

 

Ingredients: 

1/3 cup olive oil

4 cloves of fresh garlic

4 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

1 lb shrimp (about 16 shrimp) peeled and deveined

Simply mix all of the ingredients in a bowl coating the shrimp. Melt butter and olive oil in a heavy bottomed pan over medium-low heat. Add the shrimp and sprinkle with salt (love our pink himalayan sea salt with seafood) and pepper.  Saute for a few minutes a side until shrimp are cooked through and pink, about 6 minutes. 

 

 

For those non-paleo eaters the sauce is delicious with crusty french bread dipped in it. Our bread is delivered fresh daily from Leonora bakery. Roast some asparagus and sweet potatoes, chill a bottle of crisp wine ( Elizabeth Spencer Sauvingnon Blanc really complements this dish) and you have the perfect spring dinner. It's a piece of cake. Enjoy!

Picanha is one of the lesser known pieces of beef in the United States. In Brazil and other parts of South America, it is quite prized - and for good reason.  It’s delicious.  The picanha is a sirloin cap (also called rump cover, rump cap or coulotte).  The meat itself is lean with very little inter-muscular fat but it is cut leaving the hardy fat cap on, which allows it to baste in its own delicious fats while cooking.
