Let's be honest, the last thing you want to do at the end of a busy day is to spend hours making dinner. You have laundry to do, kids to take care of and a glass of wine that needs your attention. This Garlic Butter Shrimp and Rice recipe is what you make when you're looking for a delicious meal that comes together quick. 20 minutes is all you need to have this tasty dish on the table.

To make this you're going to want to use a large skillet that will hold all the ingredients (everything gets tossed into the one pan). We used the Ballarini Treviso Sautee Pan with Lid. This white ceramic non-stick fry pan will be one of your most impressive kitchen items! It works with gas, electric and induction stove tops AND is dishwasher safe! Added bonus: everything looks beautiful when cooked on the white surface.
