*So, I am not very good at indoor photography. My apologies for the poor quality photo, the food does look better in real life and it is quite delicious! This is a plate full of my own lemon shrimp with angel hair pasta recipe. I’m excited to share it with you!
Now that summer is fast approaching, I like to switch up my cooking so that I can offer my family lighter fare. There is something perfect about citrus based dishes on warm days. A month ago, my cousin gifted me a bag full of beautiful lemons from her backyard tree. With so many lemons on hand, I decided to get creative! My family loves pasta, and my middle child is a huge shrimp fan, so I decided to try and combine the two. Thankfully it worked, and the spontaneous recipe turned out to be quite yummy. I can’t wait to share it with you!
