Garlic Butter Shrimp
Servings: 3 -4 servings
Plump, succulent shrimp sautéed in an aromatic garlic butter – perfect dinner in minutes. It’s also perfect for snacking!
- 1 lb large raw shrimp shelled and deveined
- 4 garlic cloves sliced
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- ½ teaspoon salt
- Chopped parsley for garnish optional
- Angel hair pasta cooked according to box directions, for serving
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes, or until nice and fragrant. (TIP: Don't let the garlic burn. If garlic slices start to brown too quickly, reduce the heat!)
Add shrimp in one layer and cook for about 1 minute, or until they just turn opaque and pink. Then flip them and cook for another minute.
Sprinkle salt and cook for another minute or so, until all shrimp are opaque and pink, stirring frequently. Don’t overcook them, or they’ll become tough and chewy.
Garnish with chopped fresh parsley and serve with pasta, or as an appetizer.
