I love an easy dinner and this Garlic Butter Shrimp with Broccoli is all the best things an easy dinner is made of. Less than 30 minutes, one pan and delicious. Great for a busy weeknight. 

I try to throw some shrimp into our meal plan ever week or so and this is one of our favorites. (Another great shrimp recipe we love is this Bang Bang Shrimp too.)

What is in the Garlic Butter?

Garlic butter is simple to make and always a great addition to shrimp. This garlic butter sauce adds a couple other flavors to give it some depth and a kick. Butter, garlic, lemon, and Italian Seasoning. If you don’t have Italian seasoning, you can add oregano, onion, basil as well. 

What should I pair with Shrimp recipe?

You can eat this Garlic Butter Shrimp with Broccoli recipe all by itself and be very happy. I also love to pair this one with noodles. The Garlic Butter sauce covers the noodles and creates a delicious, rich sauce along with the shrimp and broccoli.
