Ingredients

  • 20 large frozen peeled deveined shrimp, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

2. In a medium bowl, combine the shrimp, basil, olive oil, zest, salt, red pepper flakes, and black pepper. Mix well and set aside.
