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.

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.
