Garlic Butter Shrimp​

Yield: Serves 4

Prep Time: 2 minutes to 5 minutes

Cook Time: 3 minutes


  • 1 pound peeled and deveined uncooked medium shrimp
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice


  1. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels and season all over with the salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the shrimp and let cook undisturbed for 1 minute. Flip the shrimp and add the wine, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Cook until the shrimp are just opaque and the wine has reduced by half, about 2 minutes.
  2. Remove the skillet from the heat, add the butter cubes, and stir until melted. Add the parsley and lemon juice, toss to combine, and serve immediately.
Storage: Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
