Shrimp & Bean Skillet for Two {Quick Meal}

This dish is a prime example of how simple + quick can be super-sexy. I would not hesitate to serve this for lover-wooing purposes…as long as that lover enjoyed seafood…and garlic. Like, probs don’t make this if you’re not both going to eat it because garlic breath is only cancelled out by garlic breath.  Also, it goes together in 20 minutes and uses a single pan, leaving you more time for makeouts.

This recipe serves two and, to make it extra-sexy, don’t worry about plating; just serve it in the skillet and make a sharesies thing.
