Recipe: Pan-Fried Shrimp with Lemony Pea Pesto

Pan-Fried Shrimp with Lemony Pea Pesto
Food and Wine Magazine, Apr 2015, p. 122
4 stars

A pesto made with peas!  This was surprisingly delicious (I was a bit skeptical on how this would turn out).  We used the small frozen peas from Trader Joe's which made for a pesto that had a bit of sweetness to it.  This is an easy weeknight meal that you can whip up in 30 min.

Pesto ingredients:  pine nuts, peas, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, garlic, extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice, Kosher salt, pepper

Other ingredients:  shrimp, baby arugula, olive oil, lemon juice, salt pepper

  • Added red pepper when cooking the shrimp
  • Topped the arugula with cheese
