Happy Thursday!
This dish is sure to appear on your dinner table many times this summer; it is PERFECTION! It is the perfect summer dinner, since it is very light but not lacking in flavor. The fresh basil and mint pairs perfectly with the spiciness in this dish! 
Let's get to cooking!

Spicy Basil-Mint Shrimp Gluten Free Pasta (serves 8)

  • 24 shrimp, devained 
  • 1 bag of gluten-free rice pasta (14 ounces)
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • zest of one lemon
  • juice from one lemon
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • spicy infused olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
Bring salted water to a boil in a pot. Once boiling, add in gluten free noodles and boil until tender.

While the pasta is cooking, we are going to get straight to cooking the shrimp! Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Once hot, add in onions, garlic, and lemon zest. Saute for about 2 minutes, or until translucent. Add in tomatoes, mint, basil, and saute for about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Now add in shrimp and cook until opaque. Season with salt and pepper. Once the pasta has finished cooking, toss with shrimp. Drizzle and toss in spicy infused olive oil. Plate and garnish with fresh mint, basil, and lemon wedge. Enjoy!
