Garlic butter shrimp is one of my favorite ways to enjoy the little crustaceans. This delicious dish recipe is so easy and quick, just 20 minutes from start to finish, but the results are mouthwatering, powerhouse of flavors shrimp. Tender, delicious shrimp swimming in a fragrant butter, garlic concoction. There will be the most taunting smell emitting from your kitchen while the shrimp and garlic sauce simmering away, it is so hard to wait for it to be ready. Good thing shrimp cooks pretty fast.
I recommend to buy quality shrimp that is on a larger size since shrimp is the star of this dish. Buy it already peeled and deveined and take a nice quick shortcut. Sauté shrimp in butter, then create sauce by cooking garlic with more butter and chicken stock. Combine the garlic sauce with the shrimp, stir in even more butter, a squeeze of lemon juice and fresh chopped parsley. You are done! Can not get easier than that.
This simple but perfect shrimp dish is a great middle of the week dinner in a flash, but it is also satisfying and elegant enough to serve for a special occasion or for the guests.
It is amazing over pasta, rice or with a side of toasted bread. But if you prefer keeping it low-carb you can make some zucchini or spaghetti noodles, or serve it with a side of fresh salad and sprinkle with fresh parsley and lemon juice. No matter how you choose to indulge in the garlic butter shrimp it tastes wonderful. Aromatic and flavorful this simple and quickly-to-make dish never disappoints and turns out perfect every single time.
