Let’s Make It!

Gather your ingredients:

  • 4 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh chopped parsley for garnish

Here’s how you make it:

  • Start by preheating your skillet over medium heat.
  • Add butter to the skillet and let it melt.
  • Toss in the minced garlic and sauté it until fragrant.
  • Throw in the shrimp, cook until they turn pink. This would take about 2-3 minutes each side.
  • Be careful not to overcook the shrimp. Remove them as soon as they are cooked.
  • Sprinkle salt and cracked pepper for seasoning. Both should be according to taste.
  • Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the shrimp.
  • Toss everything in the pan until well mixed.
  • Finish it off with a nice sprinkle of chopped fresh parsley for garnish.
  • Serve immediately, either by itself, with pasta or with a slice of crusty bread.

Enjoy your mouthwatering Garlic Butter Shrimp!

That Was Quick!
