Whats for Dinner!

Sauteed Shrimp with Arugula and Tomatoes




The best thing about this time of year is the abundance of fresh ingredients available at the Farmer's Markets and roadside farm stands.  Freshly harvested arugula is widely available right now, which makes me almost giddy, I love it's peppery flavor.

This dinner or lunch comes together in minutes which works perfectly for my schedule at the moment.  It's a very summery dish with little to no effort going into making it.  Not to mention it's very light on the calories.

Enjoy it with a refreshing glass of white wine while sitting on the patio enjoying family and friends.




In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.  Add tomatoes and cook, stirring often, until they blister, about 2 minutes.  Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds.




Add shrimp and cook, stirring often, until almost opaque throughout, about 4 minutes.  Add arugula, season with salt and pepper and toss until wilted, 1 minute.  Add lemon juice and toss to combine.




Happy Summer!
