Add shrimp, salt, lemon juice, and dried parsley to a ziploc bag. Marinade for 15 minutes in refrigerator.
Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add shrimp with marinade to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimp is cooked through, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat. Set aside.
Add pesto ingredients to a blender or food processor. Puree until smooth. Add more water to thin out as needed.
Serve shrimp with pesto.
I chose to use larger shrimp for this recipe, but you could smaller shrimp too- whatever you feel like! For larger shrimp you’ll get about 3-4 shrimp for the 100g serving. For smaller shrimp you will get more like 6-10 shrimp per serving.
I recommend making making a bulk size of the pesto because it can be a challenge to blend up tiny amounts of ingredients. It will be much easier if you double or triple the recipe and save some for later.
You can adjust how thick you like your pesto simply by adding more water to thin out the mixture as needed.
During the summer months, consider adding the shrimp to skewers and grilling them outside!
