Lemon-Garlic Shrimp

It’s a recipe as old as time, shrimp with citrus and garlic. The two pair as well together as anything, creating some of the all-time best Shrimp Scampi recipes to Shrimp cocktail. Adding garlic only adds a whole new level of flavor to expand the possibilities of the dish. With this Lemon-Garlic shrimp recipe, we are building a foundation for us to build multiple dishes. Now we are going to set this recipe apart by using our American Steam Griddle. We can sear the shrimp while at the same tie steaming it to help create the perfect harmony of texture and flavor. If you’re ready to get this basic but epic recipe underway, then let’s go!
