Garlic Butter Shrimp

10 Oct

A while back I was in search of a new recipe using shrimp.  I had been using a shrimp alfredo recipe, but wanted something different.  That’s when I came across  this recipe for Garlic Butter Shrimp.  It’s really straightforward and fairly quick to put together.  For this meal, I only had 1/2 pound of small shrimp, so I halved the recipe.

Garlic Butter Shrimp

What you need:

1/4 cup butter
1 lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley, or 1 Tbsp dried parsley
Cooked rice or pasta

How you make it:

Melt butter in a large skillet.  Saute garlic and shrimp in butter until shrimp turns pink.  Add in lemon juice and parsley and heat for a few minutes more.   Serve over rice or pasta.

For this meal, I served it over angel hair pasta.
