  • lbs  raw jumbo shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 6 tbsp  unsalted butter
  • large garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2  cup  parsley minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • lemon


  • If your shrimp are fresh, pat them dry with paper towel before cooking. If still frozen, thaw quickly by placing them in a colander and let the cold tap water run through. It might take about 15 minutes.
  • In a large skillet, melt 3 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat. 
  • Add minced garlic and cook 1-2 minutes until fragrant, stirring with a wooden spoon.
  • Add defrosted shrimp, and season with salt and pepper to your taste. Cook until shrimp starts to turn pink, about 2 minutes on each side.
  • Add in the remaining butter, lemon juice and parsley. Stir until butter is melted and everything is combined. Remove from heat.
  • Check seasoning and add more salt or pepper if needed. Garnish with lemon wedges and more chopped parsley. Serve with rice or paste, and enjoy!


For a lighter variation, you can replace the butter with olive oil.
