Pan-Fried Shrimp with Lime Butter

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Panko-coated pan-fried shrimp with a delicious lime butter that is tasty enough but does not overpower the flavors of the shrimp. Serve over a mixed greens salad or with angel hair pasta with cream sauce and a fresh vegetable for a larger meal."

I really enjoyed this recipe, it was relatively simple to make and the flavor was great! I found I needed more oil, lime, and butter at the end for my pound of shrimp.
