Dorot is fresh garlic and herbs that are frozen into cute little cubes—you can store them in your freezer for up to two years. Dorot pre-portioned garlic, onions, and herbs eliminate chopping and measuring, making it effortless to season and flavor your cooking. Dorot is picked fresh and flash-frozen on site to lock in freshness. It is all natural, raw, and vegan; it contains no preservatives or artificial flavors; Dorot is also kosher, halal, non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, and soy-free. What more do you want? It’s basically having fresh herbs at hand without having to actually grow or chop them!

I know shrimp seems fancy and like it should just be for special occasions...but when it's this quick and simple, you can make it any ol' time.
4 to 6 servings
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 3 cubes Dorot crushed garlic
- 1 to 2 cubes Dorot chopped basil
- salt and pepper, to taste
- red pepper flakes, a pinch or two...or three! (optional)
- 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails on
- juice of 1/2 lemon
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
In a small microwave-safe bowl, add olive oil, butter, lemon zest, garlic, basil, and salt and pepper. Heat in the microwave until butter is a bit softened and garlic and basil are partially thawed, about 15 seconds or so.
Mash everything together. It doesn't need to be smooth.
Add red pepper flakes, if using.
Brush about a third of the mixture onto an oven-safe skillet (I used my trusty Lodge cast iron pan).
Place the shrimp in a single layer in the pan. Brush the rest of the garlic-basil-lemon mixture over all of the shrimp.
Bake until the shrimp are pink and opaque throughout and the butter mixture is bubbling, about 10 minutes. Squeeze half of a lemon over the shrimp while they're still hot.
Serve warm, right from the pan. It would make a perfect Superbowl appetizer! Or serve these shrimp over some pasta (or spaghetti squash) for a scampi-style meal. Or chill the shrimp and use them to top your favorite green salad. When it's this easy, you'll make this dish again and again!
