Shrimp with Corn and Basil from My Baking Heart

Another week is in the books. And although it felt like this one went by pretty quickly (for me, anyway), I’m still excited to get home from work tonight and catch up on The Chew. I’ve seen updates on their Facebook page about such guests as Fabio Viviani, Gina Torres, Denise Richards and the band, Foreigner, and I can’t wait to see the goodies they’ll all bring to the table!

To go along with Mario’s Lobster Roll and Summer Shandy, featured in the YouTube video below, I made an amazing dish of Shrimp with Corn & Basil. Originally created by Michael Symon, this is a one-pan meal that will knock your socks off and is perfect for beating the Summer heat! Flavored with garlic, citrus juices and spicy red chile flakes, this quick dish is one that you’ll definitely be adding to your weekly rotation.
