Ingredients for Lemon Garlic Butter Shrimp

SKILLET WORKS

One of the great things about this recipe is the simplicity of flashing the shrimp in a hot skillet and just adding in the rest of the ingredients as you go. Thankfully, all of the ingredients are easy to find with most available at your local grocery store.

The star of this recipe is shrimp and you should feel confident using either fresh or thawed from frozen. The recipe calls for the shrimp to be peeled and deveined, so ask your fishmonger to do it or prepare them yourself if you can.

GARLIC IS GOOD

Health professionals and nutrition experts the world over have long been touting the nutritional benefits of eating garlic. Because garlic is so good for us, and because we’re crazy about the flavour, we say bring it! Feel free to add more than the recipe calls for; both garlic and lemon on shrimp seem meant for one another.

Getting those shrimp to jump in the pan as they cook up with the butter, garlic and chili flakes is pretty wonderful. But then that final toss with a squeeze of lemon juice and a splash of brandy, well that’s just a final invitation to get your tastebuds jumping!
