Servings: 6 servings
- 3 tablespoons butter (or ghee) plus more, as desired
- 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 4-5 cloves garlic minced
- 1 lemon juiced
- chopped parsley to garnish
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium high heat and then stir in the garlic. Cook this for about 30 seconds.
Add the shrimp to the skillet and season it with salt and pepper. Cook the shrimp for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until the shrimp begins to turn pink.
Take the shrimp off the heat and stir in the lemon juice. If you'd like it extra buttery, you can add more butter now as well.
Garnish with freshly chopped parsley and serve.
- When it comes to shrimp, do your best to not overcook them. That's when they become rubbery.
