We like shrimp not only because it tastes good, but also because it’s quick and easy to prepare.
I pulled zucchini squash, yellow squash, and green onions out of the refrigerator and sautéed them for a minute with a little minced garlic. To spice it up, I added Rotel tomatoes with green chiles, and plenty of seasonings.
It had a light spicy sauce ~ perfect for shrimp and fresh veggies. A quick dinner that we really enjoyed, and I hope you do too!
