What if I said you could have this delicious meal on your table within 5 minutes? This lovely, decadent meal that is restaurant quality? Would you believe me? You should!
I make this often because it’s a nice treat, but I can also eat it without pasta. It’s filling, but not heavy. Perfect when you are trying to be good in between all of the treats that have been cooked up lately! Even though you take shortcuts, this meal will taste nice and fresh. My mind immediately goes back to Summer. Use previously frozen shrimp and you can have this on your plate in 5 minutes. Use uncooked and it will take you a few more minutes. Throw some pasta with it and you’re still at your table in around 10 minutes! Prep is nice and easy, chop some grape tomatoes in half and cube up some fresh mozzarella. Buy the little mozzarella balls and you’ve saved yourself that prep. Definitely use fresh mozzarella in this dish. Anything else will not give you the cheesy, melted results you are looking for. Plus, you’ll skimp on the taste big time.
Shrimp Saute with Pesto, Mozzarella, and Grape Tomatoes
- 14 Large Shrimp, previously frozen
- 1 Tbsp Pesto
- 8 grape tomatoes
- 2 oz fresh mozzarella, cut into cubes
Add all of the ingredients to a large saute pan on medium-high heat. Stir to spread the melting cheese. Cook for about 2 minutes, just until the tomatoes are tender and the mozzarella is nice and creamy. If you are using previously frozen shrimp you only need to reheat them, so don’t over cook!
If you are using uncooked shrimp, add all of the ingredients and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes.
