Serves: 2
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 16 large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 Tablespoons very finely chopped fresh flat leave parsley, plus a few sprigs for garnish
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Lemon Wedges
  1. In a large skillet, melt the butter with the olive oil over medium-low heat. When the butter foam subsides, stir in the garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the garlic is lightly brown, about 7 minutes. Do not let the garlic brown.
  2. Increase the heat to medium-high and add the shrimp and salt. Cook for 2-3 minutes, turning the shrimp once, until they are just pink. Stir in the parsley and lemon juice, and cook 1 minute more.
  3. Serve garnished with lemon wedges and parsley sprigs.
