This is my new favorite fast food. And I know it looks super chic and super impressive and maybe even a little intimidating, but this is the fastest weekday meal you can prepare on those busy weekdays.
You’ll need some quick-cooking oatmeal first, except we’ll rework it a little bit using chicken broth and milk, to add a little more flavor and creaminess here.
Shrimps with garlic butter and oatmeal – The best fast and comforting food! Perfectly garlic buttered shrimp, cooked so quickly, served with the creamiest oatmeal!
Then you need shrimp, a ton of butter, garlic, lemon, paprika, thyme, and white wine (but you can replace the chicken broth with a non-alcoholic substitute). Cooking is super fast, so keep an eye on it.
From here you can complete your creamy oatmeal with the most winged, buttered, and lemony shrimp with all the most ludicrous pieces. So fast and so much that you can let the oatmeal absorb the leftover sauce!
