Simple Garlic Shrimp
If you like shrimp and garlic, then this is the recipe for you.
|1 1/2 tablespoons||olive oil|
|1 pound||shrimp, peeled and deveined|
|sea salt, to taste|
|6 cloves||garlic, finely minced|
|1/4 teaspoon||red pepper flakes|
|3 tablespoons||lemon juice|
|1 tablespoon||caper brine|
|1 1/2 teaspoons||cold butter|
|1/3 cup||chopped italian flat leaf parsley, divided|
|1 1/2 tablespoons||cold butter|
|water, as needed|
1 Heat olive oil in a heavy skillet over high heat until it just begins to smoke. Place shrimp in an even layer on the bottom of the pan and cook for 1 minute without stirring.
2 Season shrimp with salt; cook and stir until shrimp begin to turn pink, about 1 minute.
3 Stir in garlic and red pepper flakes; cook and stir 1 minute. Stir in lemon juice, caper brine, 1 1/2 teaspoon cold butter, and half the parsley.
4 Cook until butter has melted, about 1 minute, then turn heat to low and stir in 1 1/2 tablespoon cold butter. Cook and stir until all butter has melted to form a thick sauce and shrimp are pink and opaque, about 2 to 3 minutes.
5 Remove shrimp with a slotted spoon and transfer to a bowl; continue to cook butter sauce, adding water 1 teaspoon at a time if too thick, about 2 minutes. Season with salt to taste.
6 Serve shrimp topped with the pan sauce. Garnish with remaining flat-leaf parsley.
