I love a meal that can feel special, but can be on the table in about 30 minutes.
Frozen shrimp are almost always in my freezer. They defrost quickly, can take on a marinade in 15 minutes and cook even faster!
The shrimp in the meat counter are often the same frozen ones you buy, so don't pay extra for them to defrost them.
I keep an eye on them at my grocery store and when they're on sale I toss a bag or two in the freezer. Costco is also a great place to buy them for a good price.
Mustard and cream are a marriage made in heaven. Dijon is my favorite here because I feel like it has a nice kick to the cream. Dill is the perfect seasoning to bring it all together.
The lemon gets put into the butter as a full half and stays through the whole cooking process. The sugars in the lemon caramelize as it cooks and become sweet and tart. Squeeze it over the dish right before serving.
