Spiced Garlic Lemon Butter Shrimp with Parmesan Corn Polenta.

Jump to recipe

Really it’s more a fancier shrimp and grits, but so delightful! I make this every few months and always forget to take a picture! I tend to like this as a comfort food on a weekend vs a weeknight type of thing.

It’s ooey and gooey and just so nice. The original recipe can be. found here. I changed it up a bit, as I like to have the oil and spices on the shrimp and truly hate thyme. I have removed it from my spice cabinet. I assume it is like cilantro to some, thyme is my cilantro! I halved the recipe to just have enough for 2 with a little left over.


This is so delightful, all the melted butter – make sure to pour it over the shrimp when you pull it from the pan! It’s pretty easy and in multiple parts to not get too stressed out when all the things need to be completed. There is not a ton of spice in this dish, so modify it to your liking. Lately I have been using my chipotle seasoning mixture!

If you try it, let me know what you think!
