What a great day to make some Pesto Shrimp, easy delicious and beautiful! It is wonderful to see fresh basil everywhere from supermarkets to the farmer’s markets. Basil is such a fragrant and perhaps one of the ancient herbs used in cooking. Results are always delightful when you add some fresh basil to any dish.
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
1 cup green onions, chopped
2 tablespoons basil pesto
1 teaspoon White Jasmine Sajji Masala
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 pound frozen shrimp, de-veined and de-tailed
1 cup fresh basil
In a saucepan warm up the olive oil on medium heat. Add green onions and sauté for a couple of minutes. Add the shrimp, pesto, Sajji Masala and salt. Sauté everything for 5-7 minutes. Lower the heat and let the shrimp cook for another 5 minutes or so. Remove from the heat, sprinkle fresh basil and serve warm on pasta or on Basmati rice.
Hope you enjoy the simple recipe, as always there is nothing bland about it!
