You know the drill. You are starving. You’re on your way home from work. And the commute that should have taken 35 minutes just took an hour. You are THIS CLOSE to ordering take out when suddenly, you remember the shrimp that you defrosted.

This recipe was put together in a record 20 minutes. From start to finish.
