Sauteed shrimp involves some of the easiest preparation on the planet: pan, butter, shrimp. Go! But as easy as that is, it’s not difficult to add the tiniest flavor twists and be surprised at the amazing outcome.

With summer’s official arrival not too far off, I’m craving the light and bright flavors of those hot months. Lemon and mint combine in this easy pan sauce to make a romantic, delicious dinner. With a few candles and chilled wine, shrimp with lemon-mint sauce might just become your go-to dinner for company. I know it’s vying for my top spot.

If you buy a bunch of mint for this shrimp dish and need another recipe to use the rest, check out My Favorite Mojito on kitchenscoop.com. Enjoy!
