So quick and easy. This shrimp dish pretty much goes with anything you pair it with cause of its basic ingredients. I made this with my pesto noodles and they worked very well together.

This lemon pepper shrimp was perfect! I tossed it with spaghetti squash and it was perfect. Such a light and delicious spring dish. I love the garlicky flavors too, it was incredible.

Adding a few tablespoons of the sauce from a can of chipotle peppers in adobo was perfect! It really changed the flavor and heat of the dish, in the best way.

This was really good and easy to make. I did want more heat but instead of using adobo, I added red pepper flakes. Simple, delicious, and perfect tossed with noodles.

Added 4 tablespoons of the adobo sauce plus one chipotle pepper, chopped. It made the lemon shrimp spicy, flavorful, and delicious. Paired nicely with spiralized sweet potato noodles.
