This is a great appetizer or a meal for two. You can eat it with our without pasta.

  • Salt and pepper
  • 1  TBS extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove – diced tiny
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Splash or white wine
  • 1/4 + 1 TBS butter (I like to use salted butter for this)

  1. Pat both sides of the shrimp with a paper towel to dry.
  2. Lightly salt and pepper both sides.
  3. In a stove top pan, heat the olive oil on medium high for about 3 minutes.

  5. Turn shrimp and cook for another 5 minutes.
  6. Remove shrimp from pan and set aside.
  7. Using wine, deglaze the pan and add the butter.
  8. When the butter is melted, add the garlic and cook for about 2-3 minutes, making sure the garlic does not burn.
