Just a little about what’s been going on with my family before the recipe. My youngest child, Ryder, ‘rearranged’ his room today. By that I mean, he moved all his Legos from the middle of the room to under the window! What is it with the Legos? They are out and on the floor all the time…all of them.
He also proclaimed at breakfast that I should put bacon in everything! He has a point!

I need a really quick meal on Mondays. The boys have after-school activities and boy scouts and there is little time to prepare a big meal. Fortunately, this meal cooks in 4 or 5 minutes.
Sometimes, we eat the shrimp with a side dish. Other times we pile them on lettuce for a salad. As well, they make a great shrimp taco with lettuce, tomato, corn, and this sauce.
I used garlic basil herb butter because I had it in the fridge. You can use salted butter and 1 teaspoon of dried basil.
This is such a quick and simple recipe. It’s done and on the table in practically no time!


You can also cook these on the stovetop in a hot pan. Furthermore, you can also easily grill the shrimp a few minutes per side. Be careful to not overcook them or they’ll be tough.

You can easily cut back on the heat by adjusting how much Sriracha and red pepper flakes you use.
