Shrimp with Basil-Garlic Butter

March 3, 2016 Recipes  No comments

Tonight I was looking for a way to make a quick dinner with some flavor.  This recipe, along with some roasted vegetables, turned out wonderfully delicious.  The butter and garlic are pretty common.  But, the fresh basil and sun-dried tomatoes take it to another level.  Plus, it is quick and easy.
