Garlic Butter Shrimp Recipe

Directions

1. To make your garlic butter shrimp: Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. In a bowl, season shrimp with salt and pepper, to taste. Add shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimp is pink, about 2-3 minutes; then set aside in a shallow plate.

2. Add garlic to the same skillet, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in chicken stock, hot sauce, and lemon juice to deglaze. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until reduced by half, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in remaining 6 tablespoons butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, until melted and smooth.

3. Stir in shrimp and gently toss to combine with the garlic butter sauce. Reheat for 1 minute, then serve the garlic butter shrimp immediately, garnished with chili pepper flakes and fresh chopped parsley, if desired. Enjoy! 🍤

Tips for the garlic butter shrimp

  • Use extra-large or jumbo shrimp (or prawns) in this recipe! They’re fat and juicy!
  • This Garlic Butter Shrimp recipe cooks very quick, over-cooked shrimp is rubbery, tough and not pleasant to eat at all.
  • Buy shrimp (or prawns) already deveined, shelled and cleaned, and you have yourself such an easy recipe to prepare. You can use shrimp with tails on or off.
  • Frozen shrimp is okay for this recipe but try as much as possible to buy wild-caught shrimp. fresh wild-caught shrimp tends to have better flavor.

How To Make Garlic Butter Shrimp

Butter — use unsalted and adjust the amount of salt when taste testing.
Garlic — fresh garlic is best but you can use store-bought minced garlic.
Parsley — swap out parsley for cilantro to add another flavor profile to this incredible Garlic Butter Shrimp!
Lemon juice — the acidity adds another depth of flavor in the sauce.
Hot sauce — Use the hot sauce of your choice we used Sriracha Sauce
