Day 6: Lemon Garlic Shrimp
I swear, one day, the pics will improve. I mean, they kinda have to, don't ya think?
Anywho! This recipe came from a friend who got it from a chef at Spoodles in Disney's Hollywood Studios. (I can't help but love the recipes from Disney!)
I've tried my hand at garlic shrimp in the past, even Red Lobster's, but this one turned out the best. Not too lemony or garlicy; just the right amount balanced in a succulent shrimp. Highly recommend!
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, divided
36 large shrimp, deveined, butterflied
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped, divided
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp coarse salt
1/8 tsp freshly cracked pepper
1/2 bunch parsley, roughly chopped
1. Melt 1/2 the butter in sauté pan. Add 1/2 the garlic and sauté until just golden.
2. Add shrimp and toss to coat. Cook about 1 to 2 minutes each side until shrimp is almost done - pink, firm and slightly opaque.
3. Add lemon juice and remaining garlic and butter, but do not allow it to boil.
4. Season with the salt, pepper and parsley. Serve.
Very simple. Very delicious and worth the small effort!
