Shrimp is a wonderful source of protein. It has 140 grams of protein in 1 pound of shrimp. I always try and rotate in some shrimp and fish into our dinners, so that we are not just constantly eating, beef, chicken or pork.  I used to think seafood was something you only got when we went out to eat as a kid. Now I know I can pick up some shrimp in the store and make a simple dish that tastes like I slaved away for hours creating the perfect concoction of flavor.

Two flavors I love to always pair is lemon and garlic, it seems like they just create a whole new dimension of flavors for any dish. Whether it be pasta, in a shrimp dish like this, or to top some chicken. Then you bring in the lemon element of this dish and it adds such a fresh zest that is so light and refreshing, it helps make this dish taste nice and light!

This dish always makes me think of warm summer days, where you could whip this up and then head out and sit on the patio to eat with a cup of iced tea or lemonade. Listen to the birds chirping, kids playing in the neighborhood, and just enjoy the outdoors. Since we had a few days that were a little warmer, I just couldn’t resist making this dish and reminiscing on the warmer days. At least it is right around the corner!

I grew up making lemon pound cake, and now that I am an adult and have kids of my own I carry on the tradition. I have just upgraded my recipe and use my beloved Air Fryer. This Lemon Air Fryer Pound Cake Recipe below is a breeze to make, and it is so moist and scrumptious down to the last drop. When I first created this pound cake recipe for my Air Fryer I was a little nervous if it would turn out. But it turned out perfectly, and I haven't looked back at baking cakes in my oven!
