This recipe comes together in less than 15 minutes and combines the mild, grassy taste of leeks and herbs in a buttery sauce. We love it over couscous but it goes great over rice, tossed with some pasta or even on its own with some crusty bread on the side.



1 pound of shrimp

1/2 cup of leeks, finely sliced

3 garlic cloves, minced

3 tablespoons of butter

1/4 cup of your choice of parsley, mint or cilantro

Salt (to taste)

Freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

Season shrimp with salt and pepper.Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium high heat and cook the leeks until softened, about 4 minutes.Add the garlic to the leeks and cook for another minuteAdd the shrimp to the pan and cook until pink and firmServe over couscous, basmati rice or pasta
