Garlic Shrimp – amazing sauteed shrimp with garlic, butter, lemon juice and cayenne pepper. This recipe takes only 10 mins from prep to dinner table!
Garlic pairs perfectly with shrimp in a simple saute as it infuses the shrimp with the amazing aromas. I always use a combination of olive oil and butter to saute my garlic. Butter makes everything better, it really does.
The end result is a skillet of sizzling garlic shrimp: super garlicky, buttery, with a tint of citrusy lemon juice. Top the shrimp with dashes of cayenne pepper and chopped parsley and you have the most perfect shrimp dish that your family will love you for, and it takes only 10 minutes!!
