Course dinner
Servings 4 people


  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 10 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 lb. raw shrimp shells off (tails can stay on)
  • ¼ white wine
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley chopped
  • juice of half a lemon
  • ½ tsp. salt


  • In a medium-sized skillet heat olive oil and half of the butter (2 tbsp.) on medium heat. Add in chopped garlic cloves and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Add in shrimp and cook until they just begin to turn pink. They will need about 2 minutes on each side, so flip after 1-2 minutes.
  • After you flip the shrimp, add in white wine and let it reduce for about 2 more minutes.
  • Add in the salt, remaining butter, lemon juice, and fresh parsley. Stir to combine. Take off heat.
  • Serve with pasta, rice, zoodles, or a chunk of crusty bread!
