Pesto Shrimp with Mushrooms
- Heat large skillet on medium-high heat until hot. Add olive oil - it should run without sizzling. Add shrimp, season shrimp with ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes, cook for about 3 minutes, turning once midway, until shrimp is pink and cooked through. Remove shrimp from the skillet.
- Add another tablespoon of olive oil to the same, now empty, skillet. Add sliced mushrooms. Add minced garlic. Season mushrooms with ¼ teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring, until mushrooms release liquid and reduce in volume and get soft, for about a minute or two. Add back the cooked shrimp. Add ½ cup basil pesto and ½ cup chicken broth. On medium heat, mix everything to combine. Remove from heat.
- When ready to serve, top the shrimp with chopped fresh basil.
