How to Make Tasty Garlic Shrimp

Step-by-Step

  1. It's up to you whether you keep the tails, or remove them from the shrimp. I prefer to remove them prior to cooking.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

    Add the garlic, and sprinkle with the cayenne pepper. Cook and stir until the garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  3. Add the shrimp and cook, stirring often, until the shrimp are opaque, about 2 minutes. DON'T OVER COOK!
  4. Add the butter and stir to coat the shrimp.

    Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
