- 2 tablespoons butter (or coconut oil)
- 1 lb shrimp (not frozen, needs to be thawed)

- 1 tablespoon garlic salt
- 1 lemon (freshly squeezed)
- 1/2 cup chicken broth (or you can use water)

In a large pot of boiling water cook angel hair (or spaghetti) pasta according to directions.
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.
Add shrimp, salt and pepper, garlic salt. Cook, stirring occasionally until the shrimp turns pink. About 2-4 minutes.
Stir in lemon juice and chicken broth (you can use water). Bring to a simmer.
Stir in fresh parsley and parmesan cheese.
Toss with angel hair pasta and garnish with more parmesan and parsley. Serve immediately.
Tip: Serve with a side vegetable like broccoli or green beans. I find when eating healthier if I pair my main course with a side vegetable it helps to make me feel full quicker.
