I cook just about every night. Sometimes it’s a long-drawn-out meal, but sometimes I just want to get dinner on the table. You can almost always tell the difference.


But once in a while, something comes along that tastes like it took hours in the kitchen, but actually was a few minutes and hardly any dishes.


This is one of those meals. It comes together in minutes, and the hardest part is blending up the citrus oil.


Let’s talk about the citrus oil. It starts with some Ava Jane’s Premium Avocado Oil. From there, an orange, a clove of garlic, and a few herbs are pulsed. The result is a fantastic oil that you’ll drizzle over your golden browned shrimp.


Serve this with an easy side dish — some garlic sautéed spinach is perfect, as is a green salad, roasted potatoes, or Instant pot rice.

Use this again: The citrus oil is perfect for drizzling over fish, chicken, or roasted vegetables. Or try it on your morning eggs.
