Something old, something new

We spiced up this seafood dish with some Old Bay seafood seasoning and fresh parsley. The shrimp combines with rich melted butter and Old Bay’s spiciness. It all goes well atop a serving of couscous. Here is our recipe:

What you will need:

1 wooden spoon
1 fry pan
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons butter
4 garlic cloves, diced
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
12 oz couscous, seasoned and cooked
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning
1 ½ lbs shrimp, peeled and deveined
¼ cup chicken stock
Pinch of salt

Cooking and Directions:

Heat up fry pan on medium high heat. Add olive oil, ½ of garlic, and salt. Throw down shrimp and let them cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Next add butter, lemon juice, left over garlic, Old Bay, and chicken stock to pan. Let shrimp braise for another 5 minutes before adding fresh parsley, stirring, and removing pan from heat. Serve immediately with seasoned and cooked couscous.
