Spicy Lemon Garlic Shrimp Recipe – Filled With Flavor

This spicy lemon garlic shrimp recipe is a family favorite. My young daughter LOVES SHRIMP and I try to make her dishes like this as often as possible because she typically doesn’t eat fish.  But this one is a winner. Thankfully, my children aren’t afraid of a little kick. So, the zest and the bold spicy flavors that are combined in this dish are a match made in heaven for my family. I hope your little ones will enjoy it as well.  

You can combine pasta or rice with this spicy lemon garlic shrimp recipe – the choice is yours. Even a fresh salad will do! Serve it by itself as a wonderful app. There are enough delicious flavors to hold a course.
