I love to cook, which should be obvious, but in case it’s not: I do love cooking.

That being said, sometimes I just don’t want to chop, dice, or stand over a hot stove to make a meal. Especially after a busy day, or when it’s hot outside.

After a busy day recently, I wanted something fast, easy, and tasty without having to order a pizza. I’m sure you can relate, right?

After a quick look in the fridge, I saw some shrimp, and looking around the kitchen I had a pint of farmer’s market cherry tomatoes, some herbs, and a bottle of avocado oil. Some pasta in the pantry, and I came up with something quick, easy, but also kind of elegant, because, why not?

This takes about 15-20 minutes to get from stovetop to table, and requires little in the way of cleanup. Is there anything better?

I used what I had on hand to do this, and I’ll share of course, but feel free to try whatever you have or like as far as herbs, citrus, or even seafood. I served this with pasta and tomatoes, but it would probably be good with rice, zucchini noodles, or even in a salad.
