I love shrimp with a lot of flavor, and this dish certainly has flavor, thanks to the zesty lemon, fresh herbs, and a little punch of garlic.
Servings: 5 cups

The worst thing you can do to shrimp is overcook it; they become rubbery and hard to chew. Remember, when you remove the shrimp from the heat, they continue to cook, so don't overcook them while they're in the pan.
