How to make Pesto Shrimp with Mushrooms

Step 1: Over medium-high heat, heat a large skillet. Once the skillet is hot, add olive oil.

Midway to cooking, turn once and continue to cook the shrimp until pink and cooked through. When done, take the shrimp out of the skillet and set aside.

Step 3: Into the same skillet, add another tbsp of olive oil.

Step 4: Add in the sliced mushrooms and minced garlic. Season with 1/4 tsp salt. Saute for about a minute or two until the mushrooms have released liquid, reduce in size, and become tender.

Step 5: Place the cooked shrimp back to the skillet along with half a cup basil pesto and half a cup chicken broth. Stir to combine and cook further over medium heat.

Step 6: When done, remove from the heat. Garnish with chopped fresh basil. Enjoy!
