This baked potato with lemon shrimp is a great option for your busy weekdays. It takes less than 30 mins to be ready and tastes wonderful. Enjoy!
I love this time of the year because some of my favorite things to cook are roasted and baked recipes. I don’t know why but I just think baked and roasted dishes taste so flavorful and delicious. So, now that it’s fall and the weather is getting cold, we all can warm up a little bit in the kitchen by baking your delicious dishes. For me, one of the best ingredient to bake is the potato. I just think they taste much better baked than fried. My husband says I am crazy, but I am being very honest with you guys. Baked potatoes are my favorite way to have them.
This dish is so easy to put together and the only thing you have to worry about is the shrimp cooking time because as we all know shrimp cooks very fast. If you cook it too long, your shrimp will get rubbery. The trick here is to bake your potato first and when they are al dente, add the shrimp. By following this tip, you will be sure your baked potato with shrimp will be an awesome meal for your busy and chilly weeknight. Another cozy meal I’ve really been loving is this Spaghetti Squash with Sun dried Tomato and Basil, they go great together!
