Description

Easy to prepare and full of flavor. This is perfect for 2 or 20!

Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 10 cloves Garlic, Chopped
  • 2 pounds Shrimp, Shells And Tails Removed (21-25 Size Is Perfect)
  • Sprinkle Of Kosher Salt And Black Pepper
  • 1 stick Butter, Divided Into Chunks Of About 1 1/3-Tablespoons Each
  • ⅓ cups Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 3 Tablespoons Capers And A Bit Of The Juice
  • Red Pepper (Cayenne) To Taste, I Like It Spicy So I Usually Use At Least 1/2 Teaspoon
  • 2 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Parsley

Preparation

Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and saute for 30 seconds. Add shrimp and saute for 1-2 minutes, then lower the heat to medium. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and add in 3 chunks of butter and the lemon juice. Continue to saute until cooked through (about 2 more minutes), turning occasionally to ensure an even cook. Remove from heat, add capers and caper juice, sprinkle with the red pepper and parsley and add in remaining butter. Toss until the butter is melted and serve immediately.

Enjoy!

Notes:
This is a fabulous appetizer as well as a great meal with a hunk of crusty bread and a salad or even some pasta.
If you like cilantro more than parsley, feel free to substitute. If you are not into capers (gasp!), feel free to leave them out—but I wouldn’t!
If you are cooking for a crowd and serving this as an appetizer, I would make 2 batches since it cooks up so fast. That way it stays nice and hot while your guests gobble it up!

Oh my gosh. The name says it all. It is INCREDIBLE. And as jilly83 said, it comes together really fast. I have made this a couple times for the family and even the husband (who is a meat and potatoes type of guy) liked it. I was also just informed that my niece is requesting it for her birthday on Sunday.

The one thing I did change about the recipe was adding about half a can of coconut milk. It adds some body and creaminess to it and we like to dip crusty sourdough in the broth/juice! YUMMY!

Exceptional! I would not change a thing. My husband is picky and told me that this dish was amazing. I agree this is a keeper and it comes together very fast. Thank you!! Will be making for years to come.
