5 Minute Lemon Garlic Shrimp
This super flavorful lemon garlic shrimp takes only 5 minutes to cook, or about 10 minutes total including prep time. Oh so quick and easy but totally delicious.
Servings 4 people
- 1 pound large shrimp peeled and deveined
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 6-8 cloves garlic minced. See Note
- 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 cup white wine
- fresh parsley chopped, for garnish
In a skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add shrimp and sprinkle with plenty of salt and pepper. Cook about 1 minute, not stirring.
Add minced garlic and cook 30 seconds, stirring regularly. Pour in the white wine and lemon juice and cook 2 minutes, stirring, until shrimp are pink and cooked through.
Toss with fresh chopped parsley and salt to taste. Serve over rice, mashed potatoes, pasta, or cauliflower rice.
I adore my garlic press to make this recipe even quicker and easier.
You can leave the tails on the shrimp for a more stunning appearance, but it's easier to eat with the tails off.
