Lemon Garlic Shrimp – easiest and best shrimp recipe with garlic, shrimp, butter and lemon, all ready in 20 mins. Perfect as appetizer or with pasta.
This is a great dish to share with friends and family. Open a bottle of white wine, champagne, or beer, and you and your guests can all dig in the shrimp and be totally merry and happy. Few shrimp dishes are as tasty as this lemon garlic shrimp, in my honest opinion.
For the best result, use medium-sized shrimp, as bigger shrimp tend to be rubbery in texture. Peel off the shell, leave the tail on so you can actually use your hand to eat the shrimp. Hold it on the tail and suck the lemony, garlicky, and buttery flavors off the entire shrimp, ahhhh, you will be in shrimp heaven.
