Growing up my mom used to make this all the time. Its a super simple recipe and you can throw the shrimp's over rice or a nice salad.


Prep 5m Cook 10m




  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

  • 1/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes

  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails left intact

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper





Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and red-pepper flakes; cook, stirring, until garlic is fragrant and golden (but not brown), about 30 seconds. Add shrimp; raise heat to medium-high, and cook, stirring often, until shrimp are opaque, 1 to 2 minutes. Add butter, and stir to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
