Here are a few things to help make them perfect each and every time.
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.
FLASH IN THE PAN
This recipe for sautéed shrimp presents the perfect opportunity to practice your wrist-flicking skills. 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!
Transferring your finished LEMON GARLIC BUTTER SHRIMP from skillet to serving dish is always a nice moment. The shrimp look so appetizing and the aroma coming up off the dish is so enticing. Don’t forget that final sprinkle of freshly chopped parsley just before serving.
Expect these delicious LEMON GARLIC BUTTER SHRIMP to disappear in no time!
