4 Tbspfresh garlic, finely chopped
2 Tbspbutter (to reduce fat, you can use 2-4 tablespoons olive oil)
3 lbraw shrimp or tiger prawns, 26-30 count
1 Tbspcoarse sea salt
2 Tbspfresh lemon juice (about 2 large lemons)
How to Make Garlic Shrimp
- In a large skillet, sauté the garlic in butter until translucent.
- Add the shrimp and salt. Toss to coat the shrimp with butter/garlic, and cook just until the shrimp are pink, approximately 5 minutes. Add the lemon juice.
- Arrange the cooked shrimp on a plate. Stir the pan juices and pour over the shrimp.
- NOTE: When I serve Garlic Shrimp as an appetizer, I usually leave the tails on (makes it easier for guests to serve themselves). But I remove the tails when serving Garlic Shrimp as a main dish.
