Shrimp with lemon pepper vinaigrette

Popping by to share a easy summer recipe featuring shrimp, my favorite! There's a lot to like about shrimp, but for me it's definitely how quick it takes to cook them.

And even if you're not down to cook them, there's always shrimp cocktail, my friends. Here's the thing though, you can totally ditch the cocktail sauce and try something a little bit more semi-homemade. Lemon pepper seasoning is a seafood go-to, so this recipe is my take on the classic.

All you need to do is make a simple lemon pepper vinaigrette, kind of like a dressing for the shrimp. I like serving this with noodles to soak up more of the sauce, and rice noodles are great because they don't require boiling. Rice noodles can also be enjoyed cold so that's a win-win!

Enjoy this one.
