I finally got a Costco membership this year after not having renewed it for the past two years. The Costco’s in Japan are a little different in terms of products offered. Not many organic things and most products are Japanese (miso soup, rice, dried fish, beans, etc) so I usually just go there for the meat and cheese.
I got myself that huge double pack of goat cheese since they don’t sell it anywhere else in my city. To be honest, I’ve been eating it by the spoon more often than cooking with it haha. But since I had some shrimps on hand, I thought it would go really well with them.
This easy dish really doesn’t need any time to make. Just fry the shrimps up for a couple of minutes and you’re good to go! So if you’re short on time, definitely try this out!
If you’re not too fond of goat cheese, you could always try using a milder cheese like ricotta or mascarpone.
Creamy Garlic Shrimps & Goat Cheese
Peel and devein your shrimps if needed. Mince the garlic cloves. Chop the cilantro.
Melt the butter in a frying pan and add the garlic cloves. Cook for a minute or two and add the shrimps. Cook for a minute and add all of the dry spices. Cook for a minute until the shrimps are cooked through.
Turn off the heat, top with the cilantro, crumbled goat cheese and squeeze the lemon juice over everything. It's ready to serve!
