If this is your picture, please...lemme know and I will link it back to you.

I saw this on Pinterest and pinned it right away, I mean...look how good it looks!!  When I went to go to the actual recipe, the pin I had didn't work.  Pinterest kept going to a grey page saying "sorry blah blah blah" (not in those exact words).

Since I'm pretty awesome, I decided to try and make my own version of it anyways.

This might kill the people who need to follow a recipe, but for the free spirits like myself, here's how I made mine.

I put a bit of butter and olive oil in a large skillet...I really could have omitted the butter...not too sure why I even used it, I never use butter.

I added thinly sliced onions, minced garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, sea salt, and pepper.  When the onions were sort of cooked, I added the shrimp. 

I live life on the edge and had a little bit of plain greek yogurt left, so I decided to add that too.

I tasted it and it needed more flavour, so I added more salt, pepper, and lemon juice.

When all it was all cooked and smiling at me, I added whole wheat spaghetti and a bunch of arugula.

Mixed it all and served it.

It was really good!!  I also had it left over the next day for lunch...still good!!

See...you don't need a recipe...just play....take risks....be craaaazy.

Or not.

Whatever works for you.
